    Three Hospitalized After Boat Capsizes
    It only took firefighters five minutes to control the blaze.

    A motorized rowboat capsized on Indian Lake in Sharon, throwing two men and a woman aboard into the water and causing non-life-threatening injuries.

    Sharon and Lakeville firefighters and a dive team from Goshen responded to the boating accident at about 6:30 p.m. State Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) Environmental Conservation (EnCon) police responded about 15 minutes later.

    A man from New York state and Canaan man and women fell in the water when the motorized rowboat they were in tipped over while making a turn. The New York man, who had been operating the 12-foot aluminum rowboat that has an outboard motor, swam to shore on the Connecticut side of the lake, but his two passengers landed on the New York side of the lake and were helped to shore by someone DEEP is calling a "good Samaritan."

    The three boaters were transported to MidHudson Regional Hospital in Poughkeepsie, New York to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
