South Jersey Coast Guard unit rescues 7 near NYC
Friday, March 04, 2016 @ 08:23:35 EST

 NEW YORK — A helicopter crew from Coast Guard Air Station Atlantic City, New Jersey, rescued seven people Thursday near the East Rockaway Inlet near New York.

Watchstanders at the Coast Guard Sector Long Island Sound command center received a distress call on VHF marine radio Channel 16 at approximately 2 a.m. from the crew of the 76-foot scallop fishing vessel Carolina Queen III, reporting the vessel was taking on water.

 An MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew from Air Station Atlantic City arrived on scene, hoisted the seven crewmembers and transferred them ashore.

“It was a challenging case, but we had tremendous cooperation from the New York Police Department and the New York Fire Department,” said Lt. Mark Bruno, the lead pilot on the case. “Everyone communicated well and we were able to work together to get the fishermen safely ashore.”

Coast Guard Station Jones Beach launched a 25-foot Response Boat crew to assist. The inlet water produced 10- to 12-foot seas and the Coast Guard small boat capsized with five crewmembers aboard. The five crewmembers swam ashore, where they were treated by EMS personnel. No injuries were reported.
