The Coast Guard rescued two boaters aboard a fishing boat taking on water Wednesday near the Pocomoke Sound Wildlife Management Area.

Officials say the operator of the 41-foot fishing boat Carolyn Jeanne contacted his father when the boat began taking on water. The father went to the Coast Guard Station Crisfield and notified watchstanders.

The Coast Guard says a crew responded and found the two boaters trying to dewater the engine room and the engine beginning to overheat. Petty Officer 2nd Class Nicholas Hupp says two crewmembers went aboard with a pump to help and the crew then towed the boat back to Crisfield.
