O/S Texas City

Post by Scott Liebling on Sun Jul 23, 2017 10:13 am

A tanker crew rescued five people from the ocean after their boat capsized Saturday 12 miles off the coast of Galveston, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.

The Overseas Texas City crew alerted the Coast Guard to the overturned boat around 12:45 p.m., then launched its own rescue craft and pulled the stranded boaters to safety. Afterward, the Coast Guard picked up the rescued mariners and brought them ashore.

No injuries were reported.

"If not for the diligence of the crew of the tanker Overseas Texas City, the outcome of today's events may not have been as successful," said Petty Officer 1st Class Chris Rendon said in a Coast Guard press release.
