Coast Guard Rescues 3 as Their Vessel Sinks Off New Jersey Coast

A US Coast Guard swimmer rescued three people from a sinking vessel off the coast of Long Branch, New Jersey, on September 12, the Coast Guard Mid-Atlantic said.

The three people were taken to the Shark River Marina without injuries. The operation was a joint effort by the US Coast Guard Air Station’s duty crew from Atlantic City, diverted from a routine training mission, and a crew from Station Manasquan Inlet, the coast guard said.
