Brick Rescuers Dispatched, Recalled in Barnegat Bay

Sailboat was being towed back to port

Reports surfaced Monday afternoon of a potential rescue in Barnegat Bay for a sailboat in distress about a mile south of the Mantoloking Bridge, though in reality, the services of emergency crews were not required.

Pioneer Hose Fire Company dispatched its volunteer underwater recovery team after a report came in about a sailboat that had capsized, sending at least one person in the water, but the team was later recalled after the report proved incorrect.

New Jersey State Police Trooper Christopher Kay said that agency's marine unit eventually located the sailboat, which was being towed back to port.

Any more details on how the "reports surfaced"?

We normally wouldn't have a story on a somewhat "non-event," but there was a lot of emergency activity and people were e-mailing us asking about what was going on. There were also initial media reports elsewhere on a water search, and we were asked by our readers how the situation ended.

I must say we enjoy reading stories like this. We are at the beach and we personally feel there should be more stories of this nature posted.
