Coast Guard rescues Oregon fishing crew

PACIFIC OCEAN — Crew members on the fishing vessel Marion H, which ran into trouble off Tillamook Head, Ore., were rescued Tuesday by U.S. Coast Station Cape Disappointment personnel.

Motor Life Boat 47207 responded to a call for help from the boat, which was taking on water.

“After dewatering the boat for over two hours, the pumps couldn’t keep up any longer,” Cape D Station reported. “All crewmen were safely removed from the boat and brought to the Cape. Great job by all involved.”
