QUEENS, NY - On May 29th, FDNY Marine 3 responded to a report of a vessel in distress in the vicinity of the Breezy Point Jetty. Upon arrival, Marine 3 observed three victims struggling on the slippery rocks of the jetty. Marine 3 nosed up to the jetty and was able to initiate rescues of three people. Harsh weather conditions including 20 MPH winds and 2-3' swells made this an arduous task. All three victims were pulled onboard Marine 3 and evaluated and treated for injuries including dehydration and exposure to the elements. Marine 3 then transferred the three victims to land where they received care from awaiting EMS units.
