Two people were rescued from an overturned boat in the Peconic Bay Wednesday.
The Riverhead Town Police Department said the department’s marine unit was dispatched at approximately 3:06 p.m. after receiving a call about the overturned vessel and two subjects in the water. A state Department of Environmental Conservation boat in the area also responded to the scene.
Upon arrival, officers found a 15 and 16-year-old in the water near the overturned 13-foot Boston Whaler.
The teenagers were transported back to their parents at a marina off Meetinghouse Creek Road by DEC police and no injuries were reported, according to a police press release.
Riverhead police department’s marine unit was able to right the boat and tow it back, officials said.
