HOUSTON — The Coast Guard rescued four teenagers adrift on a surfboard near Cameron, Louisiana, Thursday.

A good Samaritan attempted to help but was unable to reach them. Watchstanders issued an urgent marine information broadcast.

Two Coast Guard Station Sabine boat crews and a Coast Guard Air Station Houston MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew were launched. A Coast Guard Air Station Corpus Christi C-144 Ocean Sentry aircrew was diverted and spotted the adrift teenagers once on scene.

The Station Sabine Response boat crews recovered all four teenagers and transferred them to Station Sabine where they were met by family members.
