Woman Rescued After Falling Off Floating Port Jefferson Marina Dock

Three Suffolk County Marine Bureau officers rescued a woman who fell off a floating dock in Port Jefferson.

Officers John Falcone, John Rodriguez, and Neil Stringer had just disembarked from Marine Delta when they saw a woman lose her footing and fall into the water while attempting to set up a ramp between a boat and the floating dock at the Port Jefferson Marina at 1:08 p.m., Friday, Oct 4, said the Suffolk County Police.

The officers were able to lift the woman, Donna Butcher, 66, of Port Jefferson out of the water and on to the dock. 

Jefferson was treated at the scene by Port Jefferson Fire Department personnel for minor abrasions and hypothermia.
