NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) – A Coast Guard Crew rescued two people after their boat got caught in in the rocks near the entrance of the New Haven Harbor on Friday morning. The distress call came into the Sector Long Island Sound Command Center around 10:00 am from a boater on a 31 foot vessel saying the wind pushed them into the rocks at the breakwall.
The Coast Guard immediately sent a crew to help the boaters. When then arrived around 10:30 am they found the two people on the disabled boat wearing their life jackets. The Coast Guard boatcrew helped bet the boat from the rocks and then was able to tow the boaters back to Branford. A commercial salvage company then assisted once in Branford Harbor.
