Two duck hunters were wet, but safe, after police plucked them from a boat sinking in Long Island's Bellport Bay.
 
The men were chest deep in frigid water and clinging to their swamped skiff a quarter mile from shore when a Suffolk Police Department marine unit came across them by chance Monday.

 
Newsday reports that hunters Michael Kuehl and Theodore Kokis were well equipped with hunting gear, but didn't have life jackets.
 
Police took the men to a nearby marina for a medical evaluation.
 
The officers also recovered the sinking boat.
