BROOKLIN, Maine — A diver who briefly went missing Tuesday afternoon after the engines on the fishing boat he was working from cut out was found safe off Naskeag Point, according to a U.S. Coast Guard official.

The diver’s name, age and hometown and information about the boat he was working on were not immediately available, said Petty Officer 1st Class Kurt Hein, operations unit coordinator at the Coast Guard’s northern New England command center in Portland.

“Station Southwest Harbor took the call, and the report was of a 16-foot vessel that lost its engines. At the time they lost their engines, they had a diver down and upon restarting the engines were not able to locate the diver,” Hein said.

Hein said the vessel was working in Blue Hill Bay, east of Flye Point, when the incident occurred.

“The Coast Guard launched a 47-foot lifeboat [and] a Jayhawk helicopter out of Cape Cod,” Hein said. “Before we arrived on scene, we got a report from Maine Marine Patrol that both the diver and the operator of the vessel were safe on shore.”

Hein said both people would be evaluated by emergency medical personnel from Brooklin.
