SANDY HOOK, N.J. — The Coast Guard and a good Samaritan came to the rescue of six people after a boat capsized off the New Jersey shore.
Authorities say a crew from the guard’s Sandy Hook unit received a distress call around 1:30 p.m. Monday that a 22-foot boat was taking on water near Sandy Hook. The crew was heading out to a training exercise when it received the call.
The crew soon arrived on scene and took three people on their rescue boat. The good Samaritan — who had also heard the distress call — took in the other three.
No injuries were reported in the capsizing. But the cause remains under investigation.
