Two men were rescued after a jet ski flipped Friday evening on Nantucket Sound off the coast of Falmouth, Massachusetts.

The riders got caught in a riptide in front of InnSeason Resorts Surfside on Menauhant Road.

One of the men swam through the current toward a jetty, with beachgoers helping him make it to land after 10 minutes in the water.

Falmouth Fire crews contacted a nearby boat via radio to help the second man, who was in the water between 20 and 30 minutes. He was transported to Falmouth Hospital and treated for hypothermia.

The town's police, ambulance and harbormaster also responded.
