2 men rescued from sinking boat in Manasquan Inlet
POINT PLEASANT BEACH, N.J. (AP) -August 25, 2012 (WPVI) -- Two men were rescued by a passing good Samaritan after their 17-foot boat became partially submerged at the mouth of the Manasquan Inlet in southern New Jersey.
State Police tell the Asbury Park Press that the boat began taking on water shortly after it sailed out from Point Pleasant on Saturday morning. The good Samaritan spotted the two men, ages 28 and 30, around 9:30 a.m. and brought them aboard his vessel.
A 25-foot patrol boat from Coast Guard Station Manasquan soon arrived and brought the two men back to shore. Officials say neither man was injured, but their names were not released.
It was not immediately known what caused the boat to submerge. Coast Guard and state police officials are investigating.
