Boaters rescued from burning boat on Long Island
A Weehawken man and two other New Yorkers are OK after being rescued from a burning boat Saturday night.
The boaters were traveling from Oakdale to Fire Island in Long Island's Great South Bay when they saw smoke coming from the engine compartment of the 25-foot boat.
The men tried to use a fire extinguisher to put out the flames, but wound up jumping overboard.
They were rescued and treated for hypothermia.
