Flooding is now under control on the 88-foot shrimp boat Sea King that was taking on water with four people aboard off Ponte Vedra, Fla., Tuesday morning.

The Sea King began taking on water with four people aboard two miles east of Ponte Vedra, and the Coast Guard boat crew helped to get the flooding under control by passing a dewatering pump to the fishermen. All four people remain aboard.

A Coast Guard boatcrew aboard a 45-foot Response Boat – Medium from Station Mayport in Atlantic Beach, Fla., is continuing to escort the Sea King in to a Mayport port.

The Sea King is expected to arrive in Mayport Tuesday afternoon.
