Coast Guard rescues boater off East Haven
The US Coast Guard says a man was rescued from his boat off East Haven after he reported suffering chest pains. The 48-year-old man was about 1,500 yards from Lighthouse Point Park when he issued the distress call at about 6:10 p.m. Thursday. The guard said Friday that the man was transferred to a rescue boat, and a local salvage operator towed the man’s 24-foot boat to safety. A Coast Guard spokesman said the man was receiving treatment at a hospital in New Haven.
