Three rescued after boat hits rocks near Chignik

The U.S. Coast Guard is reporting a wood-hulled fishing boat, the Unimak, is on the rocks 143 miles southwest of Kodiak near Chignik.

The three people on board abandoned ship in a life raft. Another vessel, the Sylvia Star, rescued them before a Coast Guard helicopter could arrive on scene.

The Coast Guard possibly will fly over the wreck this afternoon, so we might see a photo.
