LOVELADIES, NJ - New Jersey State Police Marine Division reported that on Saturday afternoonMarine Police Troopers rescued four people who were stranded on a barge off High Bar Harbor in the Loveladies section of Long Beach Township..

When the police arrived the passengers were already in the early stages of hypothermia.  Sgt. Adam Graczyk and Trooper James Duff from the Marine Services Bureau Ocean Station and the Tactical Insertion and Directed Enforcement Unit (TIDE Unit) arrived at 4:12 p.m.

The barge was stranded due to a "blowout tide," tide, which happens when water is blown away from the shore during a low tide, making it difficult or impossible to navigate back to land, according to the post.
