Video: Troopers Rescue Stranded Jet Skiers in Sea Isle City
Authorities say two jet skiers were rescued from being stuck in the mud in Sea Isle City last Friday afternoon.
The New Jersey State Police says they received a call about two stranded jet skiers around 3PM Friday. Cops say the pair was stuck in a muddy, marsh area.
NJSP Marine Bureau troopers responded to the scene but they were unable to free the two because the tide was going out. As a result, they requested help from the aviation unit, which responded.
Cops say, "...the pilots, Sergeant Jeffrey Dipple and Trooper I James Baranyay, along with University Hospital Flight Nurse Richard Harris, Flight Nurse Ryan Paynter, and Flight Paramedic Tracy Connellan arrived to assist with the rescue. While the pilots maintained a low hover, the flight staff helped the stranded jet-skiers onto the helicopter."
No injures were reported from the incident.
