DARIEN, Conn. -- The Darien Police Marine Unit rescued four people from a boat that capsized off of Shippan Point in Stamford Wednesday night.

The Stamford Police Department contacted Darien Police at around 8 p.m. Wednesday, requesting assistance from Darien's Marine Division. Stamford Police had received a report of a capsized vessel with four people in the water off Shippan Point.

Darien Police Marine Unit 127 responded and located the boat. Four people were seen in the water about 100 yards off Shippan Point. Two people were clinging to the capsized vessel, and all four people were taken safely about Unit 127, police said.

Police said it is believed that the boat, an 18-foot outboard, hit a rock and capsized.  All occupants were unharmed, and were taken to shore where a waiting Stamford EMS crew checked them as a precaution.

The Stamford Police Marine Division arrived on scene and took over the investigation.
