Capsized boat: crew safe

A Coast Guard aircrew rescued a man from a capsized boat about a mile west of Devil’s Punchbowl State Park, Monday morning.

The aircrew safely hoisted the man aboard the MH-65 Dolphin helicopter and transported him to the Air Facility in good condition.

The Dolphin aircrew was in the air patrolling nearby at 11:45 a.m., when members saw a man sitting atop a capsized 16-foot boat. The aircrew deployed a rescue swimmer, and safely hoisted the man into the aircraft. The man was reportedly out fishing when he was knocked over by a wave.

Weather on scene was reported to be 4-to-7 foot waves with 10-to-15 knot winds and a water temperature of 58 degrees.
