Newell Whitehead, Chief of Portsmouth Fire Rescue and Emergency Services, reports:

Last night our boat (FireStorm 47) was able to keep a 65 feet motor yacht from sinking by using the dewatering device that we had built into our boat. It works really well. They pumped out over 1500 gallons of water from that yacht.

Portsmouth, VA, is just across the river from Newport News, VA.
