Fishing Crew Rescued Off Santa Cruz Coast

Harrowing moments over the weekend for a small fishing boat crew. The U.S. Coast Guard rescued two fishermen off the Santa Cruz coast.  Here’s more from NBC Bay Area:

A jogger on the beach near Wilder Ranch State Park told the Coast Guard about 6:30 a.m. Sunday that two men were stranded on a rock off the coast there, and that the two men called out to that jogger for help.

The fishermen had gone out on their 27-foot fishing boat earlier in the morning, and the boat had struck an object in the water not far from the rocks onto which they reached by swimming, according to Coast Guard Cmdr. Tim List, a Sector San Francisco search and rescue mission coordinator.

Coast Guard search-and-rescue teams brought the fishermen to safety.
