Man rescued off coast of Norwalk

A Norwalk boater is safe after being rescued from Long Island Sound.

Police say the man's 12-foot sailboat capsized off Sprite Island just before noon yesterday.

They say the man was wearing his life jacket and had his cell phone in a water tight bag, which enabled him to call 911.

Police say he was very cold, and starting to show signs of hypothermia when he was pulled from the water.
