On May 23rd at about 2:41 p.m., New Rochelle Police Officers responded in Marine I to Middle Ground in the Long Island Sound, report of a kayaker in distress. This is a rocky area just outside of the channel by David’s Island.
The kayaker had advised that he was being swept away by the strong winds and current, further out into the Long Island Sound.
The responding Officers successfully took the kayaker, an adult and New Rochelle resident, safely aboard Marine I. The kayaker refused medical attention, and was transported back to Harbor Unit Base.
