Coast Guard helps 5 on boat off North Carolina coast

U.S. Coast Guard

Coast Guard officials at 4:10 p.m. deployed search crews in a Dolphin helicopter, an HC-144 Ocean Sentry and a 45-foot boat.

The Coast Guard is searching for a swimmer who went missing Saturday afternoon off Matagorda Beach a quarter mile east of the Colorado River.

Coast Guard Station Golden Gate contacted San Francisco Fire Department for assistance to provide jet skis for closer access to the beach if needed, while Station Golden Gate dispatched a 47-Motor Lifeboat crew.

No one was hurt.

- The Coat Guard and San Francisco Fire Department rescued two hypothermic swimmers near China Beach and Land's End this morning.

"You need to be aware that this is a big body of water out here, and we want people to be safe".

"The Coast Guard encourages all mariners to have a commercial salvage membership in case of breakdowns requiring a tow back to shore", said Petty Officer Second Class Ian Callahan, coxswain for the case.
