The RB-S crew arrived on scene, but was unable to reach the vessel due to the water depth and kept visual on the boaters until the Dolphin crew arrived.
The Dolphin crew arrived on scene, recovered two of the boaters and left the remaining boater due to weight limitations on the aircraft. A rescue swimmer was left with the RB-S crew near the boat. After dropping off the first two boaters, the Dolphin crew returned and picked up the remaining boater and rescue swimmer.
The boaters were transported to awaiting family members at Air Station Houston.
No injuries were reported.
“Cases like this really show the importance of having some type of emergency communication device whether it’s a VHF-FM radio or an emergency position indicating radio beacon, it’s important to be prepared for unexpected situations when out on the water,” said Lt. j.g Tiana Lewter, Coast Guard Sector Houston-Galveston command duty officer. “Thankfully, due to the call from the worried father and the rapid response from our Coast Guard units, we were able to get the three boaters back to their families.”
