Coast Guard Rescues Two Men, Dog East Of Ketchikan

By | November 5, 2012 - 12:20 pm

The Coast Guard rescued two men and their dog on Sunday from Gem Cove, 23 miles east of Ketchikan. The two men were on two different 39-foot vessels that were lashed together. The boats began taking on water, and they sent out a call that was initially received by the Canadian command center in Prince Rupert. They were picked up a by 25-foot response boat because larger craft could not get into the shallow cove. The two men were quickly transferred to a medical response team when one started exhibiting heart attack symptoms.
