Three men who became stranded in a six-foot inflatable raft in the Long Island Sound have been rescued.
Suffolk County Police were notified by the Coast Guard at approximately 4:30 p.m. Sunday, May 19 of an inflatable raft with three male occupants that were unable to make it back to shore.
The three were fishing in the Long Island Sound, near Crane Neck Road in Setauket, when they were pulled approximately two miles offshore, Suffolk County Police said. Their boat did not have a motor and they were unable to paddle back due to winds blowing between 15 and 20 miles per hour.
Marine Bureau Officers Robert Daniels and Peter Bogachunas responded in Marine Delta and located the men within 15 minutes of the initial call.
All three occupants, Martin Villatoro, 23, Erick Villatoro, 26, and Ronald Benitez, 17, all of Bay Shore, were transported in Marine Delta, along with their raft, to Sunken Meadow State Park.
All three were wearing life vests and they were not injured.
