Another Day, Another Rescue... USCG Rescues 2 People, Dog Off FL Coast

MH-60 To The Rescue... 90 Miles Out in The Gulf

A Coast Guard Air Station Clearwater MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter aircrew rescued two people and their dog, Saturday, about 90 miles off Hernando Beach after their sailboat became disabled. 

The couple and their dog were brought back to Air Station Clearwater in good health, although the dog seemed a bit out of sorts throughout the rescue. Coast Guard Sector St. Petersburg watchstanders received a digital selective calling alert, at approximately 11 a.m., alerting the Coast Guard to the mariners' distress.

It was reported a porthole broke allowing water to get into the vessel damaging some of the electronics. 

"A DSC alert allows mariners to instantly send an automatically formatted distress alert to the Coast Guard or other rescue authority anywhere in the world," said Lt. j.g. Connor Sullivan, command duty officer, Sector St. Petersburg. "Due to the reported water ruining the system, this alert gave us their last known position and allowed us to investigate because the owners registered it to their equipment."

Salvage for the vessel is being coordinated. 

The Sikorsky MH-60 Jayhawk is a multi-mission, twin-engine, medium-range helicopter operated by the United States Coast Guard for search and rescue, law enforcement, military readiness and marine environmental protection missions.
