A boat crew aboard a 45-foot Response Boat-Medium from Station Emerald Isle and an aircrew aboard an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter from Air Station Elizabeth City launched to assist. Once on scene, the aircrew hoisted the four crew members and transported them to Coast Guard Station Emerald Isle.

There were no reported injuries or visible signs of pollution.
