A man was rescued after his kayak overturned in the Long Island Sound.

Suffolk County Police Marine Bureau officers rescued Marine Bureau Officers Matthew Funaro, Cory Kim and Shane Parker were on patrol in Marine Delta on Saturday, June 15 when they observed a man clinging to his overturned kayak in the Long Island Sound approximately one mile north of Woodhull Landing Road in Sound Beach, at approximately 12:20 p.m. The water was 64 degrees and the wind was pushing the man away from shore, police added.

The officers pulled the man, Humberto Castro, and his 10-foot kayak aboard Marine Delta.

Castro, 47, of Newark, New Jersey, was transported to the Mount Sinai Marina where he was evaluated by members of Port Jefferson EMS.
