Brian Daigle, of Vernon, is pulled through floodwaters in a dinghy by neighbor Ted Niemiroski, of East Hartford, to survey what's left of his cottage at 5 Saye St. in the Chalker Beach neighborhood of Old Saybrook. The cottage, which was Daigle's summer home, burned to the ground Monday night during Hurricane Sandy. He was not there when the fire started.
