A fall fishing expedition ended tragically yesterday when the vessel overturned in Raritan Bay, leaving one man dead and the other, injured. [Staten Island Advance]

A mayday call radioed in at 10:35 a.m. by a passing boater said the capsized vessel was by buoy 19. FDNY Marine 8 was dispatched to the scene, arriving in mere minutes.

Staten Island Advance: A trio of firefighters assigned to a FDNY vessel rushed to the Raritan Reach Channel, about three miles south of Staten Island’s shores, after receiving a “mayday” call at 10:35 a.m. from another fishing vessel, and arrived in time to save the 82-year-old man.

The firefighters said the boat – a 19-foot fiberglass vessel – may have flipped after its anchor line wrapped around its outboard motor, making it unstable.
