Saturday, August 27, 2011
SEATTLE (AP) -- The Coast Guard has rescued six people from a grounded fishing vessel near Decatur Island on Saturday.
The 62-foot TW Legacy ran aground while going through Thatcher Pass in the San Juan Islands.
The Coast Guard sent the Cutter Terrapin from Bellingham, Wash., to respond to a call for help at about 2:30 a.m. The crew was taken back to Bellingham Saturday morning while a helicopter scanned the water for signs of pollution.
Ballard Diving and Salvage is scheduled to recover the grounded vessel.
