    CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Coast Guard helicopter crews hoisted four people from their capsized boat near Red Fish Bay Sunday morning.

    At approximately 3:30 a.m., Station Padre Island watchstanders notified Sector Corpus Christi watchstanders that an 18-foot boat with four people aboard had capsized in three feet of water six miles north of Red Fish Bay.

    Due to the water depth, small boat crews were unable to assist.
    Air Station Corpus Christi MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crews arrived on scene at 5:38 a.m. and hoisted two of the people to Port Isabel-Cameron County airport, then returned and hoisted the remaining two to the same location.

    There were no injuries and the four people involved were met by a family member at the airport.
