The operator of the 42-foot sailboat Affinity notified watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector Delaware Bay about the incident, which occurred early Sunday near the Cape May Ferry Terminal. The man said his 57-year-old female passenger had suffered a rib injury after falling into the boat’s railing.

Watchstanders launched a crew from Coast Guard Station Cape May aboard a 45-foot Response Boat. Crew members helped the woman and took her from the sailboat to their boat before taking her back to the station.

The woman was being treated for chest and back pain and breathing problems. Further details on her condition were not disclosed.
