From Provincetown Police:
And the rescue work continues!
Just before 2pm, we received a 911 call about several people in the water along the West End Breakwater. It was learned that as a result of the astronomically high tides several people became stranded by the high tide after it washed over in great depths over parts of the breakwater rocks as people were leaving. This scenic footpath is a popular walking route to Long Point.
Provincetown Police, Provincetown Fire, Provincetown EMS & Rescue personnel responded along with the Provincetown Harbormaster, Flyer’s Boatyard Water Shuttle and a vessel from United States Coast Guard Station Provincetown. TowboatUSProvincetown also assisted.
In total 44 people were evacuated by partner boats and 5 people were treated by EMS crews at the scene and at staging areas.
