Mariners aboard the vessel PMS Escape II called the Coast Guard on channel 16, the international distress frequency, using a handheld radio at 5:58 p.m., Aug. 30, 2014, to report their pleasure boat had lost propulsion, was taking on water, listing heavily on its port side and had no battery power to operate its bilge pumps or other electronics off the coast of San Diego. A Coast Guard Sector San Diego MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew, a 45-foot Response Boat crew and the Coast Guard Cutter Petrel crew were dispatched to assist the disabled vessel.
