Kayakers Rescued. I'm not sure how they end up in that situation but this was obviously serious.

In August, while patrolling Captree State Park to ensure anglers are in compliance with recreational saltwater fishing guidelines, ECO Perkins monitored a call over the New York State Park Police (NYSPP) radio reporting three kayakers overturned and in the water near the main fishing pier. Officer Perkins responded, along with members of the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG), NYSPP, and Suffolk County Police Department’s Marine Bureau. The Marine Bureau deployed an Officer into the water to assist one kayaker through the strong current while the USCG used a line to safely guide another. The third kayaker safely climbed up the dock with assistance from other responders. Islip Rescue evaluated the three kayakers and all declined further medical treatment.
