Kayakers Rescued Off Greenport, NY


The Suffolk Times reports that a retired New York City Firefighter rescued 2 teenagers after their kayaks capsized in Long Island Sound off Greenport, NY, on Sunday, May 24. Paul Hashagen was summoned to the beach by neighbors who had seen the two 16-year-old boys enter the water around 4:00 p.m. and begin drifting rapidly away from shore. Hashagen launched his own kayak, paddled out to the boys, tied their kayaks to his kayak and paddled a half-mile back to shore. The boys were treated for mild hypothermia.
