A day-long fishing trip went awry Saturday for a group of four who left on a boat from Mattituck.
The four were fishing while anchored in the Great Peconic Bay when they noticed their 24-foot vessel was rapidly flooding, according to authorities.
One of the passengers, Juan Rodriguez, 62, of Brooklyn, called the police, and Southampton Town bay constables responded to the site, near Buoy 24 off the shore of the Southampton hamlet of North Sea.
Southampton Bay Constable Richard Franks took the vessel in tow trying to get it to shallow water, and Bay Constable Mark Ruocco arrived shortly after, taking the four passengers to safety aboard Marine 4.
Sea Tow was called in and brought three pumps to control the flooding, according to a report from the bay constables. The boat and passengers were dropped off in New Suffolk.
