WADING RIVER - Four people were rescued Saturday night when their inflatable rowboat got blown off course in the Long Island Sound.

Police say three Brentwood brothers and a woman launched their inflatable boat from Shoreham Beach to go fishing.

They were blown too far from shore and couldn't row back. Police say there were also no lights aboard the craft.

Marine Bureau officers found the group near Wading River Creek and brought them back to shore.
