Coast Guard Rescues Boaters, Cat off Southern New Jersey

It was a busy weekend for the Coast Guard in southern New Jersey.

A helicopter crew from Atlantic City hoisted two mildly hypothermic fishermen to safety early Sunday after their 23-foot boat became stuck in shallow water off Brigantine.

Meanwhile, a man who fell off his disabled sailboat managed to get back aboard and await help approximately 21 miles off Atlantic City Coast.

He was flown ashore while a Coast Guard boat crew took his cat and towed his boat to Farley State Marina in Atlantic City.
