State Police Rescue Man Trapped on Revere Beach Jetty
Troopers Jeffrey Bulis and Robert Malloy of the State Police Marine Unit were dispatched in one of the department's boats and arrived on scene shortly thereafter, where they located the 19-year-old man more than a quarter of a mile from the shore on a rock jetty jutting into the sea. The man was about to be overcome by the rising tide, which covered the route he had taken to walk to that point.
Trooper Bulis was able to navigate "Marine 9" through the rocky shoal while Trooper Malloy waited on the bow, ready to jump into the water to get the victim to safety. Trooper Bulis was able to get the safe boat close enough to the victim that Trooper Malloy was able to reach out to the victim and pull him to safety.
The troopers were able to determine that the victim was unhurt and did not require any additional medical attention.
Troopers Bulis and Malloy transported the victim to the State Police Marine Base where he continuously thanked them for "saving my life."
