Man Rescued in Piscataqua River

Seacoast Online: A relaxing Sunday morning at sea was not in store for 2 Dover men who rescued a man flailing around in the Piscataqua River.

Steve Muise said he and his friend Arthur Benoit went out in his 16-foot Starcraft aluminum boat to catch some stripers and bluefish. Instead, they may have saved a man’s life.
