Friday, August 20, 2004
The Coast Guard rescued a fisherman from the Gulf of Mexico today after he fell off the shrimp boat Kelly T approximately nine miles southwest of Sabine, Texas. A watchstander from Coast Guard Group Galveston, Texas, received a report at 10:52 a.m. that a crewman on the Kelly T was missing, as well as one of the boat's life rings. The watch stander immediately launched a rescue boatcrew from Coast Guard Station Sabine and an HH-65B Dolphin helicopter crew from Coast Guard Air Station Houston to search for the man. The helicopter crew arrived on scene at 11:40 a.m. and began their search pattern. At 12:03 a.m., the helicopter crew spotted the fisherman and the rescue boatcrew recovered him from the water. He is reported to be in good health.
