The Oneida County Sheriff’s Naval Patrol had a busy holiday weekend



The Oneida County Sheriff’s Marine Patrol Department was very busy this weekend as there were reports of a possible drowning and rescue on Lake Oneida. Fortunately, the tragedy was not the result of what happened.

Oneida County Sheriff Rob Maciol says the first incident occurred at Oneida Lake when three people were using a canoe. Maciol says a bystander noticed people were in the water at the break wall of the NYS Barge Canal just before 6:30 p.m. on Sunday. As a result of the report, the sheriff’s naval patrol reacted and upon arrival MPs spotted two people holding on to the rock face and trying to hold onto the canoe. The two in the water were identified as 27-year-old Kazin Wurtz and 24-year-old Cheyenne Jaquin, both from Canastota. According to official information, neither Wurtz nor Jaquin wore a life jacket. Marine Patrol was able to save the two people by throwing them a life preserver and pulling them onto the sheriff’s Patrol Marine 1.

Maciol says a third individual who was originally in the canoe before it capsized, 23-year-old Joshua Booth from Chittenago, was on the boat of a good Samaritan who pulled him out of the water. The three people were returned to the Sylvan Beach NYS Barge Canal emergency wall and examined by medical personnel. Sheriff Maciol says an investigation found the three people were trying to navigate the canoe on Lake Oneida and were unaccustomed to the lake’s conditions. The size of the canoe was also not appropriate for the conditions of the lake at the time and the capacity for three people. Ultimately, the three summons were issued because they did not have personal flotation devices on board the canoe. You will appear at the Village of Sylvan Beach Court at a later date.

Another suspected tragedy also occurred at Oneida Lake when the sheriff’s office received a report of drowning on the lake’s north shore. The call was received by Oneida County Emergency Services around 7:20 p.m. on Independence Day. Sheriff Rob Maciol says in response, officials learned that the reported victim had been pulled out of the water and was on board a ship receiving CPR. What led to the event that led to the EMS call? Officials say two people jumped into the water to swim just before the party reached its destination. One of the people struggled to swim and another member of his group threw them a swimming device.

The victim was able to pull himself back onto the boat and the boat finished docking at the destination. Officials say the victim who fought in the water survived a medical event that triggered the call to 911. Sheriff’s officials say the victim has been examined by the North Bay Fire Department EMS and has been approved for further treatment and transportation.

The Sheriff’s Office continues to encourage anyone planning to get on the water in a boat or other marine vehicle to always wear a life jacket or to keep it nearby. Nobody wants to see a death result from an activity that is meant to be fun. Always follow and be familiar with the safety rules and regulations for the boat.
