Coast Guard crew helps rescue boater off Cape May
CAPE MAY -- A Coast Guard crew came to the rescue of a boater whose 15-foot sailing vessel overturned near the entrance of Delaware Bay in southern New Jersey.
A pilot flying into Cape May Airport around 6 p.m. Sunday saw the man and reported the distress to airport personnel, who notified the Coast Guard.
A 45-foot Response Boat from Coast Guard Station Cape May soon arrived on scene and found the man, who was wearing a life jacket, standing on his overturned vessel. After helping him right his vessel, they escorted him back to shore.
The boater was not injured in the incident.
