3 Dead, 24 Rescued After Yacht Capsizes Off NY

OYSTER BAY, N.Y. (AP) - Police say three bodies have been pulled out of New York's Long Island Sound after a yacht capsized on the Fourth of July, and 24 others were rescued.
 
Nassau County Deputy Inspector Kenneth Lack says the three were recovered from the water near Oyster Bay after a long overnight search.
 
The U.S. Coast Guard says survivors were pulled from the water around 11 p.m. Wednesday, about an hour after the boat went over.
 
Lack says some but not all passengers onboard the 34-foot boat had been wearing life jackets. He believes they were watching fireworks.
 
Lack says weather may have played a factor or a wake from another vessel may have caused the boat to capsize.
