At 1430 Coast Guard Station Gloucester was conducting training on the CG 47322 in the vicinity of Ten Pound Island when they were diverted for a search and rescue case involving 2 injured boaters on board a 23ft vessel, one with a reported back injury, near Thatchers Island. At 1454 MLB 47322 arrived on scene and transferred 2 Station Gloucester personnel to the vessel to render aid. The Coast Guard personnel assessed the patients and rendered appropriate first aid and proceeded to closely escort the vessel into Rockport Harbor where EMS was standing by. Once safely moored the Coast Guard members transferred both injured boaters to Rockport EMS for further evaluation and transport to the hospital. Many thanks to all our port partners, Gloucester and Rockport Fire Departments and the Gloucester and Rockport Harbormaster’s for their continued support!
