Coast Guard rescues three from boat sinking near Newport
The U.S. Coast Guard has rescued three people from a sinking boat off the coast of Oregon near Newport.
People on the 29-foot boat, the Sea Star, sent out a mayday call around 6 p.m. Monday, saying their boat was taking on water. A Coast Guard helicopter crew responding to the call spotted all three people in a life raft.
They were transferred to motor lifeboats and taken safely to shore. Their ship sank before rescue crews could arrive.
