Good Samaritan fishing vessel Kona Kai recovered five people in a life raft from the sunken commercial fishing vessel Pacific 1, approximately 40 miles west, southwest of Dutch Harbor, Alaska, Friday.
Coast Guard received a distress relay from the Kona Kai regarding the fishing vessel Pacific 1, which was taking on water and listing heavily with five people aboard.
The Kona Kai transited to the last known position of the Pacific 1. A Coast Guard aircrew was able to locate the raft with all five people aboard, and deployed a data marker buoy to mark the location for the Kona Kai to make the rescue.
All five people were safely transported to Dutch Harbor and were reported to have been in good condition.
