Inwood fire, Nassau police pull truck, boat out of the water


Inwood Fire Department volunteers and members of the Nassau County police Emergency Services Unit responded to a possible water rescue at Inwood Park at 1:53 p.m. on May 16.

A truck and a boat had rolled into the water, according to Inwood fire officials. All the boat’s passengers had gotten safely out of the water near the dock by the boat launch.

An Inwood department diver performed a “safety sweep” and fastened the truck to a winch then used by the police to pull the truck, the boat and boat trailer out of the water. No injuries were reported.
