“Chief 1, Marine 2, Unit 1, and Rescue 1 responded to the Mattapoisett River (just north of the bike path) for a report of a man overboard with the boat circling him.

Chief Murray arrived and established command while R-1 and U-1 were preparing to deploy the Rapid Deployment Craft. Marine 2 arrived and was able to make it past the bike path bridge due to the tide and rescue the man in the water.

The man and his small skiff were transported to the town wharf to be evaluated by EMS. Also on scene was the Harbormaster and Police Department.”-Mattapoisett Fire Rescue.
