The U.S. Coast Guard rescued a man from the waters outside the mouth of the Bass River in Yarmouth early this morning.

Yarmouth Police, late Monday night, were alerted by the man’s girlfriend who was concerned about his well-being. The man’s truck and boat trailer were discovered at Bass River Beach prompting a search by Yarmouth Police and Fire, the Yarmouth Department of Natural Resources, Dennis Police and Fire, the Hyannis and Harwich Fire Departments, and the Coast Guard and a Coast Guard Helicopter.

The unidentified man was spotted around 4:20 a.m. adrift, on top of his overturned 10-foot aluminum boat, waving for help. He was taken to shore by Coast Guard officials and taken to Cape Cod Hospital for examination and treatment and is expected to recover fully.
