Smithtown Public Safety Bay Constables Rescue Capsized Boater on Nissequogue River

Boat Rescue

The Smithtown Department of Public Safety coordinated rescue efforts for a boater in distress last week. On Wednesday, October 21st, at approximately 3:15PM, members of the Smithtown Public Safety Waterways and Navigation Division were dispatched to a report of a capsized vessel in the Nissequogue River near Riviera Drive in Kings Park. 


Bay Constable David Rosenberg was on scene at the Kings Park Bluff handling a separate complaint, and was able to respond immediately to the location of the capsized vessel after a Good Samaritan allowed him to use their personal watercraft. Bay Constable Rosenberg made contact with the operator of the vessel, Carlo Ferrara of Smithtown. Ferrara was on top of his overturned sailboat, and Bay Constable Rosenberg was able to safely return Ferrara to shore without any injuries. Ferrara was found to be in good condition and did not require medical attention.

 

Bay Constable Blake Gifford and Bay Constable Daniel Shannon, in conjunction with the Suffolk County Marine Bureau, responded to the scene in a Town of Smithtown patrol vessel, and towed the capsized vessel back to the San Remo Boat Ramp.
