August 5, 2013

A man was injured Aug. 4 after rescue officials say he jumped from a boat into shallow water near Massey's Landing.

The man tried to jump off a pontoon-type vessel into very shallow water, said Indian River Vol. Fire Co. officials.

The man was put on a backboard and taken out of the water where he was flown by helicopter to a medical facility.

Sussex County paramedics, marine police, the Delaware State Police Aviation Unit, and rescue workers from Indian River, Rehoboth Beach and Bethany Beach responded to the water rescue.
