11.07.20 | by Christopher Cyphers | Mastic, LI – Just before 4pm, Friday, November 6, 2020, a 16 year-old male fishing from a jetty at the entrance to Moriches Inlet was swept off the rocks into the water. A good samaritan attempted to rescue the teen, but was unsuccessful. Suffolk County Fire and Rescue, Suffolk County PD, Cusogue FD, Mastic PD responded to a 911 call of a man in the water at the Moriches Inlet. Mastic PD contacted the US Coast Guard (USCG) Long Island and Atlantic Area Station at New Haven, CT. Helicopters from USCG stations at Cape Cod (MA) and Atlantic City (NJ) responded to conduct aerial searches of an area of the Atlantic Ocean south of the inlet. A Suffolk County PD Aviation Unit was also dispatched to the area to assist in the search, which continued overnight into Saturday, November 7. Early Saturday morning, a dive team from the Suffolk County PD conducted a search of the inlet and surrounding waters. After nearly 24 hours of this multi-agency operation, the USCG called off the search at 2:30pm. Family of the victim were assembled in Cupsogue County Park, on the West Hampton Dunes side of the inlet, throughout the search.
