Two aboard sinking craft rescued southwest of San Diego
The two were aboard the craft about 13 miles southwest of San Diego. The Coast Guard, after receiving a distress call, dispatched an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter and the cutter Petrel from San Diego.
Boaters from Mexico took the two aboard their 30-foot boat. When the Petrel arrived, the two were transferred to the cutter, which towed their craft to Shelter Island in San Diego.
