Coast Guard rescues 1 child, 1 adult drifting in kayaks off East Sandwich Beach, Massachusetts

BOSTON — A rescue boat crew from Coast Guard Station Cape Cod Canal rescued two kayakers, a 12-year-old-boy and his adult relative, who began drifting out to sea Friday near East Sandwich Beach.

The mother of the boy called 911 from shore at around 6 p.m. to notify the authorities. The call was then routed to Station Cape Cod Canal, which launched a 45-foot rescue boat.

The crew quickly arrived on scene and located the two drifting kayaks, which were approximately 400-yards from shore. The crew pulled both kayakers and their kayaks aboard the rescue boat and brought them back to the station where emergency medical services personnel evaluated them.

No injuries were reported.
