Connecticut: Police Rescue Kayaker from Frigid Waters

Saved by the Jacket

The Greenwich Police Department’s Marine Operations Section was called into action Saturday to assist a kayaker that fell into the frigid waters of Long Island Sound and was suffering from hypothermia.

“Despite all the precautions you may take, the weather is unforgiving and if you’re not prepared, you can lose your life,” said O’Connor. “These kayakers got lucky, but you should always err on the side of safety, and if it’s not looking good with regards to weather, then don’t go out.”
