Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) Enforcement Division agents rescued four crewmen from a sinking commercial shrimp boat in Timbalier Bay.

Agents responded to a distress call Wednesday afternoon from the "Hippy Boy", which was located west of Belle Pass.

The four crewmen safely rescued were Lenh Thach, 45, Phuong Tu Tran, 56, Tin Huu Mai, 43, all of Gretna, and Tuan Tran, 41, of Beaumont, Texas. Agents took the men to the Fourchon Harbor Police to be evaluated and reunited with their families.

No word yet on what caused the boat to sink.
