Yarmouth DNR assists duck boat, and aids individual suffering medical condition



YARMOUTH/HYANNIS
– On Wednesday, Yarmouth Division of Naturan Resources (DNR) officers in Lewis Bay, Cape Cod responded to the report of a tour boat adrift near the entrance to Hyannis Harbor.

Conditions were not ideal as winds gusted over 20mph. The duck boat was luckily blown into a vacant mooring.

DNR officers responded and located the tour boat with 23 people on board including several children.

Officers assisted and safely transferred 7 people to shore who requested to come off the disabled vessel.

The tour boat was eventually towed back into the Hyannis Docks as Barnstable Harbormaster escorted them in.

While assisting the commercial tow company at the docks officers were notified of an individual who had collapsed, struck his face while falling, and appeared to be having a seizure at the dock ramp.

Officers along with Sea Tow and a near by nurse quickly came to the aid of the individual and notified Barnstable Police and Fire. That individual was stabilized until rescue personnel arrived and then transferred to Cape Cod Hospital.
