F/V Clyde sinks. Crew rescued.

The crew of four abandoned ship after the F/V Clyde began taking on water after reportedly hitting a rock south of Atka Island, Saturday.

An EPIRB alert was received from the fishing vessel and the captain’s wife called to report she had received a phone call confirming he was aboard the vessel relative to where the alert was coming from.

Watchstanders diverted the Coast Guard Cutter Alex Haley with a Dolphin helicopter and crew aboard and launched a Coast Guard Air Station Kodiak C-130 Hercules aircraft crew.

The Dolphin helicopter crew located one life raft and one zodiac with all four crew members aboard headed towards the shore. The Dolphin crew was able to embark the four survivors and transport them to Adak clinic where they were evaluated with no reported medical concerns.
