The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) rescued two people Thursday aboard a disabled boat approximately 50 miles southeast of Bald Head Island, North Carolina.

Henry Fischer, aboard the 33-foot sport fishing boat Atlanta, contacted Coast Guard Sector North Carolina Command Center watchstanders at approximately 5:15 p.m. Wednesday requesting assistance after his boat lost steering.

Sector watchstanders dispatched a crew aboard a 47-foot Motor Life Boat from Coast Guard Station Oak Island, North Carolina, to assist.

The MLB crew arrived on scene at approximately 10 p.m. Wednesday and placed the Atlanta in tow.

A second crew from Station Oak Island got underway aboard a 25-foot Response Boat - Small at approximately 4:25 a.m. Thursday to relieve the first crew from their tow. The second crew took over at approximately 5:30 a.m.

The RB-S crew towed the Atlanta into Southport Marina in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina and moored the vessel at approximately 11 a.m. Thursday.

There are no reports of injuries.
