GREENWICH — The Greenwich Police Department’s Marine Section made a rescue near the Cos Cob Harbor over the weekend, coming to the assistance of people on a pleasure boat that hit rocks and began taking on water, police said.
The group was out on the water when their boat experienced engine failure at about 5:30 p.m. Saturday, police said.
“It was drifting toward Bluff Island at low tide, and it hit bottom,” Greenwich Police Lt. Martin O’Reilly said.
The craft was taking on water, and the boaters sent out a distress call, police said. The police marine unit was the first to arrive, followed by a vessel from TowBoatUS, police said.
