Coast Guard rescues injured boater from Gulf of Mexico

A dramatic Coast Guard rescue on Sunday, as a 63-foot fishing charter vessel took on water.

The 87-foot Coast Guard Cutter Sockeye, a patrol boat homeported in Bodega Bay, was launched to assist.

Informed that the vessel was taking on water, the Coast Guard's San Diego sector dispatched an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter, a 45-foot response boat and the Coast Guard cutter Sockeye, authorities said.

Twenty-five passengers and crewmembers are safely ashore after a charter fishing boat took on water off Southern California during the weekend. A U.S. Navy ship operating in the area also helped.

"At approximately 7 a.m., the Sockeye's crew arrived to relieve the Navy crew". Twenty passengers boarded the Sockeye leaving five Truline crew members on board to assist the rescue teams with keeping up with the flooding.

No injuries were reported in the incident.

The Coast Guard rescued a woman who had been hurt while on a boat in the Gulf of Mexico, officials said Monday. At 1:30 p.m. the Sockeye delivered the passengers to San Pedro and at 4:45 the Truline "was safely moored at the Newport Beach Shipyard", the Coast Guard reported. The vessel was based out of San Pedro.
