Two Injured When Boat Runs Aground in Shinnecock Bay

Two people sustained injuries when the boat they were riding in Shinnecock Bay struck a sandbar Sunday evening.

Southampton Town Bay Constables Danielle McManus and Nicholas DiBari and members of Coast Guard Station Shinnecock responded to the area south of buoy 12 at 6:30 p.m. after receiving a call that the 40-foot boat Satisfactory ran aground, making an abrupt stop. According to authorities, the captain, a 34-year-old Greenport man, was taken  to Southampton Hospital via Hampton Bay Volunteer Ambulance for a possible head injury. A 28-year-old Shelter Island man, who lost consciousness due to the impact, was taken to the hospital for a rib injury and possible head injury. A third passenger, a 29-year-old Manhattan woman, had no reported injuries.

A commercial tow company took the boat to a marina, where it was secured.
