An NYPD helicopter fished two men out of Jamaica Bay on Monday after they got trapped in a marsh, law enforcement sources said.
Friends of the two pals, a kayaker and wind surfer, called cops at about 4:45 p.m. when they hadn’t returned from their time in the water.
An NYPD copter swooped down, plucked the men out of chilly waters and lowered them to safety in an open field off Cross Bay Boulevard, police said.
They were not injured.
