[ARCHIVED] Harbor Unit Rescues Three After Sailboat Accident

On May 31st at about 6:44 p.m., New Rochelle Police Officers responded in Marine I to the Long Island Sound, Davenport Reef, on a report that a 27-foot sailboat had been involved in an accident.

 While en route, the officers were advised that the sailboat had struck a rock causing damage and the boat had begun to take on water. The captain of the sailboat was able to guide the boat toward Davenport Beach Club and at about 100yds out, the boat began to capsize. There was a total of four people on the boat. The captain of the boat swam to the shore in order to call the police while the three remaining passengers sat on a portion of the boat which was mostly submerged. 

Upon arrival, New Rochelle Police Officers were able to orchestrate the rescue of the three remaining passengers. The Westchester County Marine Unit, The Coast Guard and the Mamaroneck Police Harbor Unit all responded and assisted. 

All passengers of the sailboat were transported back to Harbor Unit Base and refused medical attention.
