Two Rescued After Boat Sinks Near Kruzof Island

A fishing boat sank off the outer coast of Kruzof Island Saturday morning. The Coast Guard helicopter had some trouble finding the two crew members of the 35-foot Kaitlin Rae, which sank at Beaver Point. One turned out to be on the beach to the north, at Point Amelia, the other was found ever farther to the north, at Eagle Rock, by another vessel. Both crew members were taken back to Sitka by helicopter.
