HAUPPAUGE, N.Y. – On Tuesday, July 16th, Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker congratulated three Marine Bureau Officers, Matthew Funaro, Shane Parker, and Cory Kim who resued a man after his kayak overturned in the Long Island Sound off of Sound Beach, NY.

“It is a great honor to congratulate these three brave heroes who have gone to great lengths to serve and protect the residents of our community. I thank them for their dedication to the safety of residents who enjoy Long Island’s beautiful North Shore,” said Legislator Anker.

On June 15th, Officers Funaro, Kim and Parker spotted a man clinging to his overturned kayak while they were on patrol around 12:20 pm. The water was 64 degrees and the wind was pushing the man and his kayak further from the shore. The three officers quickly responded, pulling the man and his 10-foot kayak aboard their vessel. The officers then transported the man to Mount Sinai Marina where he was placed into the care of Port Jefferson EMS members.

For more information, please contact Legislator Anker’s office at (631) 854-1600.
