Oil Rig Crew Rescue Two
Monday, November 27, 2006
Crewmembers working on the oil rig Dularge rescued two people after their boat capsized, 12 miles south west of Freeport, Texas, on Sunday.
A watchstander at Coast Guard Sector Houston/Galveston received a call from the crewmembers, stating that they had picked up two people from the water. It is unknown how long the people were in the water or what caused their boat to capsize.
Coast Guard Station Freeport dispatched a rescue boat crew to pick up the people from the rig and transport them back to the station. The rescue boat is currently enroute to the Dularge.
