NBC Connecticut is reporting that the U.S. Coast Guard has rescued two men who were stranded on a raft in Long Island Sound for two days.
"A member of the Coast Guard Auxiliary and his wife were heading from Port Jefferson in New York to Block Island, Rhode Island this morning when they came across a man in distress in an inflatable boat," NBC reports.
The news site quotes the U.S. Coast Guard as saying the man was waving a rag or shirt in a sign of distress.
