Divers Find Body in Manhasset Bay in Port Washington

Body was found in the vicinity where three others fell off a capsized rowboat.

Divers recovered a body Thursday about 150 yards offshore from the in Port Washington, Nassau County Police said. The divers were searching for a 25-year-old missing person who fell into the water after a rowboat capsized in Manhasset Bay. The body was found in about 11 feet of water. 

At 4:10 p.m. divers from the Nassau County Marine Bureau found the body in the vicinity where four men they had taken very early Thursday morning. Three of those men swam to moored vessels, where they were rescued by a Manhasset Bay Yacht Club tender operator, according to police. They were rushed to St. Francis Hospital where they were treated for hypothermia.

At about 4:45 p.m., the body was brought to the Town Dock.

"At this time we're not going to identify that body," said Nassau County Police Lt. Kevin Smith. "It's a good chance it's related to the occurance that happened last night."

However pending a positive identification, police would not say more at this time.

"They were in a birthday celebration and had to many to drink and went to the docks and made the stupidity to get on the boat drunk, but how much sense do you have drinking." Great argument (I'm being sarcastic). I'll have to remember that the next time I get behind the wheel drunk and kill someone (I'm being sarcastic).

McCabe is correct again these guys were drunk and stole a boat and that is illegal. Sylvia - McCabe is NOT cold hearted he makes a valid point. It is tragic that these guys had to pay for this stunt with a life. As far as a "fund" goes how do we know that the deceased is in need of a fund? Perhaps he has a life insurance policy for his family and maybe his surviving widow has a large salary is in a profession why do we think the guy is poor? Is it because he is Hispanic?

All of you are being judgmental. A man is dead and a child lost his father, regardless of how or why. Their croons obviously were wrong, but certainly not worthy of losing a life over.

I was not being judgmental someone died committing a crime it is very simple.
