Former President George HW Bush's son rescues woman boating in Maine

A Maine woman is thanking one of former President George H.W. Bush's sons for rescuing her on her boat.

Shirley Polinger had six passengers when her boat's engine conked out Saturday between Kennebunkport and Wells.

She tells the Portland Press Herald she flagged down a passing boat named the Fidelity IV, one of the former president's boats kept at the family compound in Kennebunkport. The boat was operated by Neil Bush.

Polinger says she asked to borrow a knife to cut away what she suspected was an entanglement around her propeller but Bush jumped into the water and couldn't find any entanglement. She says he then towed her boat to shore in Wells Harbor.

Harbor Master Chris Mayo says Polinger likely hit a lobster buoy. He says the incident was "pretty uneventful" other than the Bush family connection.
