The New Rochelle police Harbor Unit rescued two adults and a teenager who were on a boat that ran aground near David’s Island Thursday morning, police said.
Police received a distress call from the boat at 11:55 a.m., New Rochelle Detective Capt Joseph Schaller said this morning.
A man and woman from New Rochelle and a teenage boy from Maryland were on the boat that was being tossed over the rocks, Schaller said.
The Harbor Unit got the three off the boat and secured the vessel, Schaller said.
One of the three people suffered a cut above the left eye and on the top of the head but refused medical attention.
On Wednesday at 1:40 p.m., the Harbor Unit helped the New York City Fire Department and police put out a fire on a boat that was hit by lightning during the storm. The boat caught on fire at the Morris Yacht Club in the Bronx.
The burning boat was floating in the Sound dangerously before firefighters and police were able to put out the fire and secure the boat, Schaller said.
