The Coast Guard rescued two people and their dog after their vessel sank approximately 60 miles west of Coos Bay this past weekend.

Group North Bend received a call from the 34-foot wooden-hulled fishing vessel Maro at approximately 11 p.m., Friday, stating they were rapidly taking on water due to a split plank in the hull.

Air Station North Bend launched an HH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew at approximately 11:20 p.m., and Air Station Astoria, Ore., launched an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew at approximately 11:40 p.m.

Both crews arrived on scene after midnight to find the vessel had sank approximately 60 miles west of Coos Bay. Both people on board had abandoned ship with their dog and were floating in a life raft.

The Dolphin crew lowered a rescue swimmer and hoisted both people and their dog to the helicopter.

They were transported to Air Station North Bend.

No injuries were reported.
