ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — The Coast Guard hoisted four boaters from a recreational vessel five miles northeast of Atlantic City, New Jersey, Monday evening.

Coast Guard Sector Delaware Bay watchstanders received a report from Sea Tow that a recreational vessel with four boaters aboard had run aground, and due to having little food and water on board, had requested assistance from the Coast Guard.

A Coast Guard Air Station Atlantic City MH-65 Dolphin helicopter aircrew arrived, hoisted the four boaters, and transported them to Air Station Atlantic City.

There were no reported injuries to the boaters.

The owner of the boat is overseeing salvage operations.

“Filing a float plan can help to let others know where your vessel may be in case of an emergency,” said Petty Officer First Class Alex Castonguay, command duty officer at Sector Delaware Bay. “Float plans can be submitted on the Coast Guard downloadable application for mobile phones.”
