The Coast Guard came to the aid of two boaters who were aboard a disabled 19-foot boat in a southern New Jersey waterway.
Watchstanders at Coast Guard Station Atlantic City received a call around 3:40 p.m. Monday from a good Samaritan on Brigantine Beach, who reported a boat in the mouth of Absecon Inlet was towing a sailboat and appeared to be having difficulties.
A 25-foot response boat-small crew from Coast Guard Station Atlantic City responded to the scene, and it was soon learned that a man aboard the 19-foot boat had been towing his sailboat into the inlet when a large wave broke over the sailboat's stern.
That caused the sailboat to disable the 19-foot boat the man and another person were aboard.
The two boaters were not injured.
