3 Rescued on Nissenquogue River, NY

It was a busy weekend for rescue personnel on the Nissenquogue River on Long Island, New York. On Saturday, Aprll 12, firefighters were called to assist a fisherman whose boat had become stuck in the mud off Kings Park. When he got out of the boat to push it off, the man’s feet apparently became stuck in the quicksand-like muck. According to Newsday, he was in the 44-degree water some 3 hours before the firefighters could rescue him.

On Sunday, Smithtown Bay constables saved 2 men whose canoe overturned near the boat launch. An alert birdwatcher saw the men in trouble and asked nearby bicyclists to call 911. The men were taken to the hospital and treated for hypothermia.
