Small Boat Rescue In Suffolk County


While patrolling Peconic Bay, ECOs Simmons and Boyes received reports of a capsized vessel near Jamesport. The officers immediately responded and found two young boaters sitting on top of the small, capsized boat. ECOs rescued the duo and retrieved some of their gear floating in the water. Riverhead Police Marine Patrol arrived a short time later, righted the boat, and towed it to shore. The boat, boaters, and recovered items were safely returned to shore.
