Coast Guard rescues boater in Moriches Inlet
Officials say a boater was pulled from the frigid waters in Moriches Inlet last night. The Coast Guard says a boater saw another boat sinking in 6-8 foot waves east of the Inlet.
The boater tossed the man a line, but the boat drifted away. The man called for help.
The Coast Guard, Suffolk's Marine Unit and a police chopper found the boater who drifted off, sitting on top of his capsized boat.
The boater is expected to be OK.
