GALVESTON – The U.S. Coast Guard rescued two men Saturday morning after their boat crashed into rocks in South Galveston jetty, officials said.
The incident was reported at 9:06 a.m. when the two men called for help after their sailboat’s anchor line separated and directed them toward the rocks. Officials said the boat was sailing with 15 to 20-knot winds.
The men were rescued and taken by a helicopter to Galveston Scholes Airport.
No injuries were reported.
Officials said they made an attempt to recover the sailboat, but it had sunk and broke apart against the jetty.
