WESTPORT - Police say two Good Samaritans pulled an elderly Westport woman from the chilly Long Island Sound Friday afternoon after she fell out of her boat.

Police say the 68-year-old woman was kayaking off the Saugatuck Shores in Westport when she fell out of her boat and into the 50 degree water. She was in the water for at least an hour before Mike Harden and Gary Wetmore spotted her and pulled her out, authorities say.

The woman remains in the intensive care unit at Norwalk Hospital.
