Coast Guard Rescues 5 in Chesapeake Bay Near Bay Bridge


BALTIMORE (Oct. 20, 2008)—The Coast Guard rescued five people south of the Bay Bridge in Annapolis, Md., Sunday.

Coast Guard Sector Baltimore was notified that five people aboard a 28-foot bayliner were lost, seasick and the vessel was disabled. The Coast Guard talked to the owner, An Tran, who said they did not have a global position system (GPS) onboard.

Sector Baltimore was able to get the vessels position from T-Mobile using the cell phones signal. A boat crew from Coast Guard Station Annapolis arrived at 7 a.m. and towed the disabled vessel to Pirates Cove Marina in the West River.
