A tug boat captain was hospitalized after going into cardiac arrest just off the shore of the Tilcon plant in Haverstraw on Tuesday.

Stony Point Fire Department Marine Unit and Westchester's Verplanck Fire Departments were dispatched to find the boat after a medical emergency was reported. Responders found the boat with two people on board. The captain was in cardiac arrest while the other crewman performed CPR, emergency officials said.

Westchester, Stony Point NY, and Sherrif marine units removed the victim from the vessel and transported him to an area hospital, officials said.
