U.S. Coast Guard rescues 4 men from disabled trawler
The U.S. Coast Guard says four men were rescued from a fishing vessel off the North Carolina coast on Tuesday morning. The vessel, named Bald Eagle II, became disabled and was drifting towards the shore when they contacted Coast Guard Sector North Carolina. A helicopter crew and boat crew were deployed to rescue the men from the cold, 56-degree water. The four men were wearing survival suits to prevent hypothermia when the rescue helicopter arrived and hoisted them to safety. The men were transported to Elizabeth City. No injuries were reported.
