The Northport Fire Department responded to the aid of two duck hunters whose boat capsized in the Long Island Sound off the National Grid Power Plant on Sunday around 11:50 a.m.
Water rescue team members launched the boat from the Sound View boat ramp and headed east to the capsized 14 foot hunting boat in the LI sound.
One hunter was in the water holding on to the boat and the other was sitting on top of the over turned vessel. When the Northport Fire Department arrived, they pulled the hunters in the rescue boat and transported them to the Sound View boat ramp where two Northport Fire Dept ambulances were standing by for evaulation, treatment and transport.
All operations conducted under the command of Fire Chief Chris Hughes, 1st Asst. Chief Joe Pansini and 2nd Asst Chief Brad Wine. Suffolk Police deployed helicopters to assist in the search.
