Asharoken police rescued over the weekend two paddleboarders who were stranded 300 years off shore of the Long Island Sound.

While patrolling the waters of Asharoken Village on Saturday, at 2:10 p.m. officer Sid Lynn spotted a man sitting on his paddle board around 300 yards off the tip of Sand City in Eatons Neck.

The man, later identified as 20-year-old Kyle Byrne, of East Northport, was brought aboard the police boat and safely transported to shore at Hobart Beach.

On Sunday, at 11:33 a.m. police received a call regarding a distressed paddleboarder, who was around 300 yards off shore.

Lynn, who was patrolling on Asharoken Police Boat Marine One, was dispatched. With the assistance of Officer James Cox on shore, Lynn located the woman who was hanging on to a buoy.

Lynn handed a lifejacket to the woman, who was later identified as 29-year-old Manuela Uribe, of Brooklyn. She was assisted aboard the police boat as, due to high winds, she was unable to get back to shore.

Lynn brought Uribe along with her paddle board to the Soundview Boat Ramp.

She was uninjured and in good condition.
