Agencies rush to Hudson for rescue

April 28: The 1:19 p.m. emergency message reported an unoccupied, overturned boat floating toward West Point after breaking loose from its mooring. Several agencies rushed to the Hudson.

A helicopter and a drone patrolled the river from above. Volunteers from the Storm King Engine Company left the shore in their rescue boat. Police and firefighters waited near the dock of the Cornwall Yacht Club.

But after a thorough search, responders determined that the report was unfounded.

At about 2 p.m., the Storm King Engine Co. vessel returned to shore.
