U.S. Coast Guard Rescues Two

The U.S. Coast Guard rescued two women in a raft in Lake Huron near Sarnia, Ontario, Canada, Sunday night.

 

The names of the women are not being released and there is no Coast Guard imagery.

At 6:30 p.m., a search-and-rescue coordinator at the Coast Guard 9th District command center in Cleveland received a phone call from a representative at Joint Rescue Coordination Centre Trenton asking for assistance in locating the two women. The women and their raft were reportedly pushed from the shore by winds and could not get back on their own.

A rescue air crew aboard a MH-65C Dolphin helicopter launched from Air Station Detroit, and a rescue boat crew aboard a 45-foot response boat launched from Coast Guard Station Port Huron, Michigan.

The rescue boat crew located the two women, transferred them to a Canadian Coast Guard ship and were later transported to shore.
