    Video by Petty Officer 3rd Class David Weydert 

    U.S. Coast Guard District 5   

    The Coast Guard rescued a man and a woman Saturday after they encountered rough weather and seas on their sailboat the Sea Hole, 50 miles east of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina.

    Watchstanders at the Coast Guard 5th District received an emergency report from a electronic positioning indicator radio beacon registered to the Sea Hole. The watchstanders launched a MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew from Air Station Elizabeth City, North Carolina and used the Automated Mutual-Assistance Vessel Rescue program to identify and divert the merchant vessel Horizon Trader to assist.

    The crew of the Horizon Trader arrived on scene and relayed to the Coast Guard that the crew of the Sea Hole were worried about the weather and were requesting an evacuation.

    The Jayhawk crew arrived on scene and located the boaters at approximately 7 p.m., Saturday. The man and the woman were hoisted into the helicopter and taken to Coast Guard Air Station Elizabeth City.

    No injuries were reported.
