ASTORIA, Oregon. (AP) — Here’s a switch. Four Coast Guard crew members are doing well after their boat capsized in heavy wakes near Oregon and they had to be rescued by nearby civilian boaters.
The 25-foot boat capsized Saturday near Pier 39 in Astoria. Another vessel responded to an urgent broadcast and recovered the entire crew from the water.
The Clatsop County Sheriff Marine Unit towed the capsized vessel to the pier. The Coast Guard is investigating the mishap and will oversee any salvage operations.
