Re: Overboard South of Montauk LI

Also in Long Island Sound over the holiday a man and wife were fishing near Plum Gut, he jumped overboard for a swim, current running 5-6 knots, couldn't swim back to the boat. Wife didn't know how to operate the boat which was anchored, didn't know enough to throw any flotation, etc., husband drowned before any one got to him.
