A nearby fishermen heard the crash and alerted authorities.
"This is a prime example that if you see something happen, report it. The two good Samaritans were vital in assisting and reporting," said Petty Officer 2nd Class Kathryn Carlin, who assisted in the rescues from Station Galveston. "If they hadn't reported it, we would have never known."
