Rescued kayaker sues FDNY for injuries during rescue

A teenager who flipped his kayak in Jamaica Bay says he was seriously hurt by responding firefighters.

Frank Marino Jr., 17, was kayaking May 30 about 1,000 yards west of the Marine Parkway Bridge when something went wrong, and he found himself in the drink, according to his Queens Supreme Court lawsuit against the city and firefighters.
