LI man's boat gets stuck on Bridgeport beach

A Long Island man says his 34-foot boat has been stuck on a Bridgeport beach for several days after a nasty storm.



Boat owner John Cohen tells News 12 Connecticut that he was out on the Long Island Sound Saturday when he got stuck in a storm. He says the boat took on some damage and that there was nothing he could do about it.



Cohen says his friend that was on board the boat at the time of the storm was so badly bumped and bruised that he had to be hospitalized.



"There was 8-foot waves and the rain was pelting us, it was coming down sideways," says Cohen.



Cohen says he has insurance on the boat, but he has had no luck getting the boat towed back to Long Island.
