The Coast Guard helped a Manhattan man whose boat had capsized in the waters near Breezy Point. But that was actually the second time he had been rescued: The Coast Guard said a Good Samaritan had helped him out of the waters, only for 45-year-old David Cherner to dive back into the water for personal items. Petty Office 2nd Class Tom Leggett said, "He wasn't wearing a lifejacket, and this could have easily taken a turn for the worse. Lifejackets should be readily accessible for situations like this because they greatly improve your chances of survival."
