The U.S. Coast Guard says crewmembers rescued four people from a sinking vessel near Captree State Park off the coast of New York's Fire Island.

The unidentified good Samaritan radioed watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector Southeastern around 10 a.m. after seeing the 32-foot boat in flames and rescuing the five people on board.

When they arrived on the scene they learned the woman was trying to climb a latter back into her boat, but cut herself on the boats propeller.

After helping the ocean rescue crew member back to the personal water craft, they made it to the Bald Head Island Marina just before 6 p.m.
