Coast Guard rescuers have found the body of a Pomfret woman in a boat that sank in Long Island Sound near Fishers Island.
Divers pulled the body of Mary Patenaude from the sunken vessel just before 8 a.m. Monday, according to a spokesperson with the Coast Guard in New Haven.
Patenaude was one of ten people on the 50-foot boat named Priceless that struck Pulpit Rock north of Fisher's Island around 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Nine people and a dog were rescued by nearby boaters. Patenaude was in a cabin below deck when the accident happened, according to witnesses.
The boat was based out of Westerly, Rhode Island.
