    U.S. Coast Guard District 8 PADET Houston

    Monday at 11:21 p.m., Calhoun County Sherrif’s office called Sector Corpus Christi watchstanders and reported the Scatterbrain, a 67-foot shrimp boat with three people aboard, had become disabled and was adrift and dragging anchor.

    Due to shallow water depth, Coast Guard boat crews were unable to reach the men. Air Station Corpus Christi helicopter crews arrived at 4:17 a.m. and hoisted hoisted them to safety. They were taken to Calhoun County Airport with no injuries.

    The Coast Guard is working with the owner of the boat to safely recover it and prevent environmental impacts.
