Five saved from Fishing Vessel

Five fishermen were rescued from an aground commercial fishing vessel in the vicinity of Grenville Bay, north of Moclips Beach early Wednesday morning.

The five-man crew was removed from the vessel by an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew from Coast Guard Sector Columbia River and transferred to Quinalt Indian Reservation emergency medical services.

Watchstanders at Sector Columbia River in Warrenton, Oregon, were notified of the grounding at 3:30 a.m., by the crew of the Qualaysquallum, a 58-foot, steel hulled tribal fishing vessel, homeported in Westport. No injuries or pollution have been reported.

The vessel’s crew deployed the vessel’s anchor before abandoning ship via helicopter and the fishing vessel reportedly has less than 3,000 gallons of diesel fuel and 8,000 pounds of crab aboard.

The cause of the incident is under investigation.
