DUNEDIN - Two local men are credited with rescuing a man found clinging to the side of his boat on the south side of the Dunedin Causeway on May 6.

According to a report from the Dunedin Fire Department, when firefighters responded just before 2 p.m., the man, age 76, was on the beach. He was treated by paramedics and transported to Bayfront Medical Center by a Bay Flight helicopter.

The unidentified man was alone in a 10-foot-long Jon boat which had capsized off the beach about one quarter mile west of the first drawbridge on the Dunedin Causeway, the report said. He was not wearing a life jacket or personal floatation device.

Chris Russo of Palm Harbor and Ryan Smith of Dunedin were on the beach in the area and saw the overturned craft and swam out to the victim, who was clinging to the side of the boat, and used a Sea Doo watercraft to tow him to shore. The overturned boat was about 450 feet from the Causeway, the report said.

Fire Fighters want to remind boaters to wear a personal flotation device when on the water alone.
