Wathstanders at Sector Houston-Galveston received a mayday call at approximately 8:45 a.m. from a crewmember on board the 25-foot Sea Ray reporting they were taking on water.  A watchstander immediately issued an Urgent Marine Information Broadcast (UMIB).  Good Samaritans on board the Ms. Adrienne and Miss Amy responded to the UMIB.  The Good Samaritans reported that the 25-foot Sea Ray had capsized and all four people on board were able to safely swim to a nearby oil rig. 

A Coast Guard Air Station Houston MH-65C rescue helicopter crew was launched, and a 25-foot response boat crew and 41-foot boat crew from Coast Guard Station Sabine were dispatched to assist with the rescue effort.
The four people were taken off the oil rig by the 25-foot response boat crew and transported back to Station Sabine.
