Crew rescued from sinking fishing vessel off NJ coast

The commercial fishing vessel Lady Gertrude sank early Monday morning while it was fishing about 40 miles southeast of Sandy Hook, according to the U.S. Coast Guard. Petty Officer Steve Strohmaier, Coast Guard Station New York, said the vessel started taking on water and the vessel’s three-man crew abandoned the ship and got into a life raft. The crew put on their survival suits and activated the boat’s emergency radio beacon before leaving the craft. Strohmaier said good Samaritans from the boat Mazey James rescued the crew — all three of which survived the ordeal. The New York Police Department’s Aviation Unit and the U.S. Coast Guard both responded. Stohmaier said what caused the Lady Gertrude to sink is under investigation. Read the rest here 16:12
