WTOWNFLYFISHER - 8/27/2008 11:58 AM From the Inquirer and Mirror 8-27-08 Two men go overboard off Smith's Point By Jason Graziadei I&M Senior Writer Heavy seas tossed two men out of their 26-foot fishing boat just before dark on Monday south of Smith's Point, but both came ashore on Esther's Island and were ferried back to Hither Creek by the Marine Department. Assistant harbormaster Sheila Lucey, along with Chris Vanderwolk and Ken Lappin, launched the Marine Department's Madaket rescue boat and picked up the two men, who were both wearing life jackets, on Esther's Island. Their 26-foot boat was last seen drifting southeast, and may or may not come back ashore, harbormaster Dave Fronzuto said. Both men declined medical treatment once they were returned to shore, but one later went to the hospital for water ingestion. "It was a situation where this could have turned out a heck of a lot different," Fronzuto said. "They were extremely lucky."
