SAYVILLE, N.Y. -- (WPIX) -- A July 4th boat trip could have ended in disaster for one couple and their dogs if not for the bravery of a 70-year-old man.

The couple and their two dogs left Barrett Beach just east of Fire Island Pines on Tuesday and noticed their boat was on fire, police said. The 41-year-old man and 45-year-old woman dove from their boat into the water with their dogs.

They bobbed in the water safely in life jackets for about 15 minutes before a 70-year-old Lindenhurst man saw the victims in the water and brought them onto his approximately 38-foot boat.
