The Nite Nurse crew was advised to don life jackets and ensure they had an Emergency Position-Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB) with them prior to abandoning ship into their life raft.

The helicopter crew arrived on scene and located the life raft. All three fishermen were safely hoisted into the helicopter and transported to Coast Guard Air Station Cape Cod, where emergency medical services personnel were waiting.

“This case was a success because these mariners did everything professional mariners should do to be found,” said Lt. Banning Lobmeyer, the HC-144 Ocean Sentry pilot who flew on this case. “They reported the problem early which led to a quicker response time from our crews. They stayed with their boat as long as possible before getting into their life raft, took and used flares and an EPIRB, and they were dressed appropriately in survival suits.”
