July 4, 2012
New Haven Register: If not for life jackets, a capsized boat and water rescue could have ended in tragedy Tuesday, a fire official said.
The fire department responded Tuesday evening to a report of an overturned small boat and people in the water off of Fort Hale Park, said fire Capt. William Gambardella.
The initial calls was for four people in distress but fire officials discovered there were only three.
Gambardella estimated that two of them, a father and his 12-year-old daughter, were about 100 yards from shore. A third man was further out.
