Usually when you hear about a boating accident, you don't expect there to be any good news in the story. Even in the following story, this is only partially true -- but the heroism displayed by some firefighters to save the life of a man whose boat capsized is something to savor in regards to boating accidents.
The boat capsized off of Staten Island in New York, where two men -- and 84-year-old and an 82-year-old -- were fishing. Unfortunately, the 84-year-old man died in the boating accident. But the 82-year-old man was saved by firefighters after a nearby boat saw the capsize happen and called in a "mayday."
