DOVER (Dec. 28, 2012) – DNREC Fish and Wildlife Enforcement agents on marine patrol checking waterfowl hunters for compliance yesterday morning rescued a pair of hunters whose small boat had capsized near Woodland Beach east of Smyrna.
About 9:30 a.m., Sr. Cpl. Drew Aydelotte and Agent Trainee Josh Hudson were patrolling the Woodland Beach marsh flats when they spotted the two men in the water about 100 yards from shore, and quickly pulled them aboard their patrol boat.
Mario F. Cipolla, 36, of New Castle, and Kenneth Tolite, 24, of Wilmington, were duck hunting when their boat capsized just minutes before the agents arrived in the area. Emergency medical personnel from the Cheswold Volunteer Fire Company responded to the scene and treated the two men for hypothermia.
