Four rescued from vessel aground off Kodiak

A rescue helicopter today safely hoisted four people off a fishing vessel that ran aground in Chiniak Bay near Kodiak, the U.S. Coast Guard said.

The Coast Guard said it received an EPIRB alert early this morning from the F/V Savannah Ray.

Coast Guard watchstanders began calling for the vessel and received a broken mayday from crewmen saying they'd run aground and were donning survival suits and had deployed a life raft.
