Patchogue emergency responders received a call around 5 a.m. on Thursday, June 15 to reports of a vehicle driving off the Mascot Wharf and into Patchogue Bay near Southern Ocean Drive.

When crews arrived, they found a Nissan sedan submerged in water with its driver, Nestor Riosarvealo, 33, of Patchogue, trapped inside, according to Suffolk Police.

Constable Edward Pitre and Patchogue Fire Department member Peter Feehan jumped into the water and broke a window in one of the vehicles before pulling Riosarvealo to safety.

All three men were taken to Long Island Community Hospital in Patchogue for minor injuries. They were later released.

It’s not clear why Riosarvealo fell into the water.

The incident occurred nearly a year ago when a Patchogue woman drove her Subaru Outback into the water near the same location, The Daily Voice reported.

She was eventually rescued by a quick-thinking 17-year-old boy who jumped after her.
