Video Release: Coast Guard Assists Fishing Vessel Taking On Water Off Montauk

This is absolutely amazing. On Saturday, a fishing boat was in real trouble 70 miles off the coast of Montauk, taking on water. All four crew members of the boat were saved by the U.S. Coast Guard. This ship was very, very lucky. The guys on this boat could have easily not made it. Incredible job by the U.S. Coast Guard in Montauk.
