Four crew members were rescued when their tug sank off of the coast of California. The Coast Guard received a distress call and launched a motor lifeboat, cutter and helicopter. The helicopter was able to rescue the crew. Once again our thanks go out to the Coast Guard.
You can read the official report on the Coast Guard’s site.
