Coast Guard cutter crew rescues 2 people, dog near Westport

Coast Guard Boat in Morro Bay, CA 04 Dec 2007

The crew of the Coast Guard Cutter Sea Lion, an 87-foot patrol boat homeported in Bellingham, Wash., rescued two people and a dog in the water near the entrance to Westport, Wash., Saturday.

Sea Lion crew safely recovered the 52-year-old man, 50-year-old woman, and their dog, treating them for signs of hypothermia while transporting them to Coast Guard Station Grays Harbor.

The crew of the Sea Lion, while on a routine patrol, discovered the two people and dog clinging to their overturned 22-foot vessel. The Sea Lion crew notified Sector Columbia River watchstanders and launched their small boat to recover the individuals. The Sea Lion remained on scene to monitor the overturned vessel and ensure the safety of boaters in the area while Station Grays Harbor launched to tow the overturned vessel into port.

“A big Bravo Zulu to the alert crew aboard the Coast Guard Cutter Sea Lion,” said Mark Dobney, a command duty officer at Sector Columbia River. “This case illustrates the importance of having proper safety equipment and communications devices while at sea. Without the excellent professionalism of the Sea Lion crew, these survivors may not have been found.”

A small boat crew from Coast Guard Station Grays Harbor recovered the overturned vessel and towed it into the harbor.

The weather at the time of the incident was reported as 12 to 16 mph winds and 6-foot seas.

The survivors were reported to be wearing their lifejackets. Despite signs of hypothermia, no injuries were reported and emergency medical services were declined.
