Coast Guard assists boaters who ran aground near Grays Harbor in Westport

The Coast Guard assisted boaters aboard a 26-foot recreational vessel that ran aground near Grays Harbor in Westport, Wash., Sunday.

Watchstanders at Coast Guard Station Grays Harbor received a distress call from a good Samaritan on VHF-FM Channel 16, who reported a boat with four people aboard had run aground on the south jetty near Grays Harbor, at approximately 11:20 a.m.

The four people aboard the grounded vessel were reported wearing their lifejackets and with no visible injuries.

Crewmembers from Station Grays Harbor launched a 47-foot Motor Life Boat and a ground crew to the scene, while an aircrew from Coast Guard Air Station Astoria in Warrenton, Ore., deployed an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter.

Three of the four boaters were able to walk the jetty to shore.

The fourth boater was hoisted aboard the Jayhawk and taken to Station Grays Harbor where local emergency medical support was waiting.

The crewmembers of the MLB were able to pull the vessel off the jetty and tow it to Station Grays Harbor.

There was no report of pollution.
