Coast Guard crews rescued two fishermen Monday, after their boat started taking on water in the Gulf of Mexico. At approximately 3:30 p.m. Coast Guard watchstanders at Sector Corpus Christi received a radio transmission from a distressed fisherman saying, “We have breached the hull, we are going down.” The call came from a 40-foot fishing boat, the Miss Yalanda, with two individuals aboard. Their boat was taking on water and flooding the engine room approximately 19 miles off the coast of Port O’Connor. Sector Corpus Christi launched a boatcrew aboard a 45-foot Response Boat — Medium from Coast Guard Station Port O’Connor and an aircrew aboard an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter from Air Station Corpus Christi. When the rescue boat arrived on scene, two Coast Guard crewmen went aboard the vessel to reduce the flooding with pumps brought from the rescue boat and from the rescue helicopter. The fishing boat was later put in tow and brought to Port O’Connor to assess damages and make repairs.
