Suffolk County Marine Bureau
Before emergency crews could arrive, two Good Samaritans passing by on a 26-foot boat rescued Michael Scaringi’s 12-year-old son from the sinking boat.
Suffolk County police said members of the Marine Bureau were patrolling at around 2:22 a.m. when they encountered a 32-foot Carrera boat taking on water after both engines had failed.
Strong tides and darkness hampered the recovery effort but just after 11 p.m. Saturday night, the plane was lifted up out of the water and the bodies of the two victims inside were recovered.
Suffolk County officials made a boating while intoxicated arrest Sunday night in the waters off Long Island.
