The Coast Guard rescued three duck hunters and their dog from the waters of Coos Bay, Oregon, today.
Two men, a boy and the dog were in an 18-foot boat that capsized early in the morning. Security guards at The Mill, a nearby casino, spotted people in the water and called for help about 7:30 a.m.
The Coast Guard dispatched a helicopter crew from Air Station North Bend and a 25-foot response boat from Station Coos Bay.
The helicopter arrived first and lowered a rescue swimmer. The swimmer helped the hunters and the dog into the response boat, which arrived a few minutes later. None of the hunters, ages 45, 26 and 13, were wearing life jackets.
Emergency medical personnel were waiting onshore, but none were injured.
