 NEW ORLEANS – The Coast Guard rescued two people from a boat taking on water near Lafitte, Louisiana, Thursday.

Watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector New Orleans were notified by Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office of a boat taking on water at 6:30 p.m. Watchstanders directed an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew from Coast Guard Air Station New Orleans to the location of the vessel in distress.

 The rescue crew arrived on scene at 7:06 p.m., and hoisted the two people from the boat, which had almost completely submerged into the bayou, and brought them to Air Station New Orleans.

There were no reported injuries.
