Coast Guard Transports Survivors After Rescue

Wednesday, April 23, 2003
A boat crew from Coast Guard Station Dauphin Island, Ala., has safely transported the eight survivors after their charter boat sank and they were rescued by a good samaritan this afternoon. At about 12:40 p.m., Coast Guard Group Mobile was notified by Jason Andrew aboard the fishing vessel Full Blown that the charter boat About Time sank about 25 miles south of Mobile Bay and that he was attempting to rescue the eight passengers. An HH-65 Dolphin rescue helicopter crew from Air Station New Orleans and the 41-foot rescue boat crew from Station Dauphin Island launched within minutes to respond while an HU-25 Falcon rescue jet crew from Aviation Training Center Mobile diverted to assist. At about 1:15 p.m., the boat crew attained radio communications with Andrew who informed them that all eight passengers were aboard the Full Blown and he would stay on scene until Coast Guard units arrived. The Coast Guard completed the transfer of all personnel onto their rescue boat at about 2:30 p.m. The survivors were safely transported to the Fort Morgan ferry terminal in Mobile, Ala., at about 4:15 p.m. There was no report of injuries and the case will be investigated.
