Good Samaritans rescued five people and a dog after a boat capsized off Cape May on Sunday.
Capt. Rustin Cassway, operator of the Cape May-based shipwreck diving boat Research Vessel Explorer, says his vessel was the first on the scene after a boat capsized early in the afternoon about a mile from the Cape May Inlet.
Cassway, assisted by his passengers, threw life vests to the people in the water and rescued four of the five and a black lab from the water.
The U.S. Coast Guard responded and brought the rescued group back to land. No one was injured.
“Like Forrest Gump said, ‘You never know what you’re gonna get,'” Cassway quipped.
