12:25pm–Stratford–Police Marine unit responding to an overturned 15 foot boat in the Housatonic River near the Route One bridge. Two people were rescued, no inures reported. A nearby boat came and rescued the passenger as the owner of the overturned vessel waited for the police boat to arrive. It is unknown at this time why the boat overturned. Ironically, the rescue boat was in Fairfield earlier when Fairfield unveiled their new boat obtained from Homeland Security funds to be used regionally. Police Chief Gary MacNamara said that “rescues happen year round” and this is case in point. Special thanks to John Kovach from the Stratford Star for contributing the photo.
