Coast Guard Rescues 2 from Sinking Boat

 BAYFIELD, Wis. – The Coast Guard rescued two people after their boat sank 100 yards off shore outside Siskiwit Bay at approximately 10 p.m. Wednesday.

Station Bayfield arrived on-scene with a 30-foot Utility Boat and tried to pump water out of the 39-foot motor vessel Toy House Two.

When the pump failed they took the two passengers on board and brought them to shore with the intentions of returning with an additional pump.

By the time they returned, the vessel had already sunk.

Marine Safety Unit Duluth sent a response team to asses the damage and any potential pollution.
