ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – A Coast Guard MH-65 Dolphin aircrew rescue three mariners from a grounded pleasure craft near the entrance of Little Egg Harbor, New Jersey, on Sunday.

Watchstanders at the Coast Guard Sector Delaware Bay command center received a report via VHF channel 16 from the 36-foot pleasure craft Phyllis II stating that the vessel ran aground near the entrance to Little Egg Harbor.

Coast Guard Sector Delaware Bay dispatched a 29-foot Response Boat Small –II boatcrew from Coast Guard Station Atlantic City to the scene. The boatcrew was unable to approach the Phyllis II due to low tide.

An MH-65 Dolphin Short-Range Recovery Helicopter (SRR) aircrew from Coast Guard Air Station Atlantic City was launched to the scene. The rescue swimmer was deployed, the crew hoisted the three mariners and transported them to Coast Guard Air Station Atlantic City.
