Coast Guard Assist in Rescue

Wednesday, July 10, 2002
A Coast Guard law enforcement team from Station Mayport, Fla. assisted in the rescue and detention of an illegal migrant believed to be an Ukrainian citizen who reportedly jumped off the freighter Kamchatskiy Proliv as the ship departed the Port of Jacksonville about 12 a.m. yesterday. The crew of the fishing vessel Hooked on Snook, while participating in the Greater Jacksonville King Fish Tournament, sighted the man in the water three miles east of Mayport about 10:45 a.m. yesterday. The crew of the Hooked on Snook recovered the man out of the water and contacted the Coast Guard. A Coast Guard law enforcement team was dispatched to rendezvous with the Hooked on Snook. The Ukrainian man was taken into custody and brought to Coast Guard Station Mayport where he was turned over to U.S. Border Patrol agents.
