Southampton Town Police Sergeant Howard Kalb said both people, whom he described as “swimmers in distress,” are safe and that they declined medical attention upon reaching the dock at Oakland’s Restaurant on Dune Road in Hampton Bays.
Sgt. Kalb said the two people arrived at the waterfront restaurant on a boat, but did not know if it was aboard their vessel.
The Coast Guard was called off after the Town Police received confirmation that the two people were out of the water.
Two people were thrown into the water near the Shinnecock Inlet in Hampton Bays at around 6:15 p.m. on Monday, according to reports.
Initial reports stated that two people were in the water near the inlet and that their vessel, described as a 20-foot boat, was seen floating toward Shinnecock Bay, near Oakland’s Restaurant on Dune Road.
The U.S. Coast Guard was responding the scene, as were two ambulances from the Hampton Bays Volunteer Ambulance.
