The Coast Guard and some good Samaritans helped rescue six people aboard a pleasure boat that was taking on water due to storm-churned rough seas near Atlantic City.
The incident occurred Thursday about 34 miles off the Atlantic City coast.
The Coast Guard dispatched an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter aircrew to the 28-foot boat and hoisted two people to safety, while good Samaritans on a nearby boat brought the other four aboard their vessel.
No injuries were reported.
The names of those rescued were not released. Officials say the owners of the boat will make plans to salvage the vessel.
