Coast Guard rescues four people from boat in Anne Arundel's Herring Bay

Four people were rescued from a boat that was in danger of sinking Friday night.

The vessel, a 42-foot Chris-Craft, was in Maryland’s Herring Bay when it began to take on water, according to the U.S. Coast Guard. Someone on board called for help using a cellphone, and two Coast Guard response teams were sent from Annapolis.

At the scene, crew members rescued two of the vessel’s passengers, helped removing water, then towed the boat to Herrington Harbour North marina. The Anne Arundel fire boat transferred the other two people aboard their vessel.

In a statement, a Coast Guard spokesman thanked the Anne Arundel Fire Department for its assistance, saying, “Our relationships with local state and federal partners help us to save lives and make the Mid-Atlantic waters safer for everyone.”
