Coast Guard reports rescue off Maine

The Associated Press

AUGUSTA, Maine — Coast Guard officials in Boston say a 50-year-old lobsterman has been rescued after his boat became disabled and adrift in Broad Cove off Maine.

Officials said Coast Guard Station Boothbay Harbor received phone calls from the man’s father and friend after he did not return from his fishing trip when expected.

A 47-foot and 25-foot boat crew from Station Boothbay Harbor and two boats from the Maine Marine Patrol searched the area and found the man Monday aboard the 24-foot lobster boat.

He was reported to have no injuries and the boat was to be towed to Thomaston.
