2 PA Residents Rescued Off Asbury Park
A Coast Guard crew has rescued two Pennsylvania residents from the hull of a boat that capsized in
the mouth of the Shark River in Asbury Park.
Forty-one-year-old Lee Cuong of Lester and 42-year-old Hai Lee of Upper Darby were the only two people aboard the 19-foot boat, which capsized early Sunday morning. It was the second rescue from the waters of the Shark River this weekend.
Neither person was injured, but it was not immediately known what caused the boat to capsize.
A Belmar police officer notified the Coast Guard around 2:20 a.m. that two people were on the boat’s overturned hull and waving their arms. A 25-foot response boat-small crew from the Shark River
station rescued the pair around 2:30 a.m. and brought them back to the station, where they declined medical attention.
