Good Samaritan, Bay Constables Rescue Fisherman After Fall At Shinnecock Inlet Monday Morning

May 11, 2016 10:02 AM

A day of fishing turned dangerous Monday morning when a man slipped and fell after casting his fishing line in the Shinnecock Inlet and had to be rescued by the Southampton Town Bay Constables.

According to Southampton Town Police, Robert Biangazza, 56, of Ronkonkoma fell at about 9:10 a.m. and was clinging to a rock on the west jetty, with his lower body hanging in the water. Another fisherman, Carl Rohn of Hampton Bays, held onto him and asked a bystander to call 911.

Senior Bay Constable Al Tuzzolo and Bay Constable Alfred Greenwald responded to the inlet. Mr. Greenwald put a safety line around Mr. Biangazza, and Mr. Tuzzolo pulled him to safety, police said.

Hampton Bays Volunteer Ambulance treated Mr. Biangazza for minor cuts and bruises, police said.

Yes,God bless the coast guard, but they had nothing to do with this rescue. It was the Southampton Town Bay Constables that responded. God bless them too!
