Coast Guard Crews Rescue 2 Fishermen

 

Coast Guard crews have rescued two men who were hospitalized after being hurt in unrelated incidents aboard fishing vessels off the southern New Jersey coast.

The first rescue occurred around 2 a.m. Saturday, when a crewmember from the 105-foot vessel Friendship notified Coast Guard Sector Delaware Bay in Pennsylvania that a 47-year-old man needed medical attention. A 47-foot motor life boat crew from Coast Guard Station Atlantic City soon took him to shore.

About three hours later, a crewmember from the 78-foot fishing vessel Bald Eagle II reported that a 32-year-old man had injured his arm when it got tangled in a net.

An MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew from Air Station Atlantic City soon flew the man to a hospital, assisted by crewmembers from Coast Guard Station Manasquan Inlet.
