A Queens man was rescued from the Great South Bay by Suffolk County Police Marine Bureau officers Friday afternoon after his jet ski overturned.
Sazlul Kabiri, 22, was jet skiing shortly before 2 p.m. approximately 300 yards south of Swan Creek in East Patchogue when the watercraft overturned, police said.
Jeffrey Wetzel, a good Samaritan who was on the beach, heard Kabiri shouting in the bay and swam out to him on a boogie board. The two men waded in the water and began shouting for help, police said.
A police boat responded to the location after a 911 caller reported distressed swimmers in the water and Marine Bureau Officers Robert Femia, Christian Schnoor and Robert Jenkins pulled the men out of the water, police said.
Kabiri and Wetzel, 41, of East Patchogue, were not injured.
