CATSKILL — A Greene County man was rescued safely after his craft began sinking in the Hudson River on Sunday morning, Lt. Ron Frascello of Catskill Police said.

Nicholas Miller, 32, of Catskill, was towed safely back to land by another boat, Frascello said.

At about 10:16 am, Miller called Greene County 911 to report that his boat was taking on water just south of the Rip Van Winkle Bridge, off the shore from Catskill.

The 911 dispatcher advised Miller to put on a life jacket.

Catskill Fire Department and Catskill Ambulance were sent to the scene, but they were not needed.

A good samaritan came to Miller’s rescue and towed his craft to the boat launch at Dutchman’s Landing.

There were no reported injuries, Frascello said.

Catskill Police investigated. They were assisted by the Greene County Sheriff’s Office.

The boat was removed from the water and everyone was back in service at 10:55 a.m.
