Swimmers Rescued from Hudson River

On July 4, 2023, at approximately 9 pm, Sheriff's Deputies, along with Cold Spring Volunteer Fire Department and Philipstown Ambulance, were dispatched to a call of swimmers in distress on the Hudson River near Little Stony Point Park just north of the Village of Cold Spring.

Upon arrival, Deputies observed two persons, a male, and a female, who were later determined to be Westchester County residents, in the river having trouble staying above water. A quick-thinking Deputy removed and secured his duty gear, entered the water, and began swimming to the two parties. With the assistance of a civilian boater, he got them into the boat, and they were all brought to the shore, where they were evaluated by EMS personnel and refused medical treatment.
