The Coast Guard and partner agencies monitor debris and pollution Monday after two boats grounded on the Manasquan Inlet jetty Sunday, stranding four people.

The captain of the 32-foot boat, Slashbacks, contacted Coast Guard Sector Delaware Bay watchstanders at 11:30 p.m. Sunday via VHF-FM channel 16 radio reporting the Slashbacks lost power while towing a 31-foot boat, Lady Jane, through Manasquan Inlet.

As a result of the power loss, the tow line parted and both boats grounded on Manasquan Inlet’s southern jetty, stranding three people on the jetty and one person aboard the Slashbacks.

A 47-foot Motor Life Boat crew from Coast Guard Station Manasquan Inlet rescued the person aboard the Slashbacks and members of the Point Pleasant Police Department rescued the people from the jetty. The four people were taken to the Coast Guard station with no reported injuries.

A Coast Guard pollution response team and members of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection are on scene for pollution mitigation operations.

Crewmembers from Miller Environmental are working to dispose of the fuel tanks.
