Writer:  AFS1970

Description: Multiple phone calls from people on a 12 person fishing boat, reporting male & child overboard, no qualified operators on board. Due to language barrier with callers no vessel location other than Connecticut and no vessel name were able to be obtained. GPS/ALI location for 1 caller showed well inland (likely tower) and one showed location in water. Due to this, the call was broadcast to neighboring towns for any available public safety boat to respond. Siren from Noroton Marine 34 was heard over phone, assisting in locating vessel. Stamford Fireboat 236 located boat and found nobody overboard and all subjects accounted for. Vessel was escorted into marina, EMS transported a child with a minor laceration. Coast Guard responded to pier to meet with vessel operator.
