Three fishermen rescued from sinking boat off Galveston South Jetty

 
A U.S. Coast Guard boat crew rescued three fisherman after their boat began sinking early Sunday morning near the jetty off Galveston.
 
Crewmembers of the shrimp boat Jana Lynn called Sector Houston-Galveston watchstanders via VHF-FM channel 16 at around 3 a.m., reporting their boat was taking on water. 
 
Watchstanders launched a Station Galveston 45-foot response boat crew, who quickly retrieved the men before the situation got worse. They reported that their dewatering pumps lost power and they maneuvered the boat on the jetty to keep it from sinking.
 
Coast Guard Marine Safety Unit Texas City pollution responders continue monitoring the situation and have seen no sign of leakage from the 3,000 gallons of marine diesel aboard the boat. Contractors are scheduled to attempt salvage operations as soon as weather permits, which may be Thursday or later.
