All hands safe

The fishing vessel Patty J ran aground early today in Square Cove southwest of Juneau, the U.S. Coast Guard reports. All five crewmen managed to get into a skiff and another fishing vessel rescued them. The Coast Guard launched a helicopter and a response boat after receiving a 4:30 a.m. mayday call that the vessel was taking on water. The Patty J had been traveling from Auke Bay to Excursion Inlet when it grounded, the Coast Guard said. USCG photo
