Three Fishermen Survive Fishing Vessel Sinking Near Coos Bay

Three fishermen survived the sinking of the 50-foot fishing vessel NEW YORK last Sunday. The vessel reported taking on water shortly before grounding in the surf just north of the Coos Bay entrance. Attempts to airlift the crew from the vessel proved to be impossible because of surf conditions. The three crewmen were able to swim through the heavy surf to shore, where they were met by rescuers. Before salvage operations could be undertaken to save the vessel, it broke apart in the surf. The cause of the accident is unknown. There were no crewmen injuries noted in initial reports.
