Coast Guard Rescues 4 Fishermen From Sinking Boat

The Coast Guard rescued four fishermen Wednesday after they abandoned their boat off the coast of Rockland, Maine.

The captain of the 76 foot fishing vessel Aaron and Melissa II radioed watch standers that his boat was taking on water.

An HC-144 Ocean Sentry aircraft and an MH-60 Jayhawk Helicopter launched with crews from Air Station Cape Cod and located the raft and fishermen, who were hoisted aboard the chopper.

The men were taken to an airfield in Brunswick, Maine and transported to a local hospital.

They were reported to be in good condition.
