Coast Guard Helicopter Rescues 3 Commercial Fishermen

Jul 14, 2021
Three fisherman whose commercial vessel started taking on water and sinking were recently rescued from the waters off Long Island by a Coast Guard helicopter, officials said.

The Coast Guard said the men were about 72 nautical miles (133 kilometers) southeast of Montauk, New York when they made an emergency call around 9:30 p.m.

The Coast Guard responded by cutter and helicopter, and arrived at the scene to find the men in a life raft, having abandoned their ship.

The three men were lifted into the helicopter and taken to a Coast Guard station.
