Man in Scuba Gear Plants Pirate Flag, Claims Island in New York City

An emotionally disturbed man in a wet suit tried to seize Governors Island by hoisting a pirate's flag. The incident caused a massive response by the U-S Coast Guard and New York City police. The newspaper says Nash claimed he was trying to seize Governors Island for the Blue Tulip Party, a political organization he started. Workers on Governors Island saw Nash raising a pirate flag at 6:40 yesterday morning and they called the Coast Guard.
