Suffolk County, NY - Sept. 5, 2018 - Suffolk County Police Marine Bureau officers rescued a man from the water after his unoccupied boat was found floating in the Long Island Sound on Tuesday, September 4.
 
Marine Bureau Officers Cory Kim and Gregory Stroh responded aboard Marine Delta after a fisherman reported finding an unoccupied 9-foot skiff floating in the Long Island Sound at approximately 12 p.m. While officers were responding to that call, a 911 caller reported a person yelling for help in the water off Old Field Road in Setauket.
 
Officers Kim and Stroh located the man, Wen Zhong Wang, 37, of Ronkonkoma, approximately 1/10 of a mile from shore. Wang, who was not wearing a life jacket, had been in the water approximately 45 minutes after he was knocked off his 9-foot skiff when it was hit by wake from a passing boat. Wang was transported to the Port Jefferson boat ramp where he was evaluated by Port Jefferson Ambulance personnel and released.
 
The fisherman towed the boat to shore where it was secured by the Port Jefferson Harbormaster.
