Coast Guard: Helicopter rescues 4 after boat burns
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The Coast Guard says a helicopter crew has rescued four people from a burning passenger vessel off Louisiana.
A news release says people on the Grand Sun reported the fire about 2:40 a.m. Monday from the Chandeleur Sound, and a helicopter arrived before 4 a.m.
The aircrew took all four to emergency medical services at Coast Guard Air Station New Orleans.
Petty Officer Travis MaGee says he doesn't know where they went from there, or their conditions.
An online copy of a Coast Guard database shows the Grand Sun as owned by Scobel Marine of Belle Chasse. A woman who answered the phone at Y and S Marine at the same address said she couldn't talk about the vessel or the people's conditions. She didn't give her name.
