Two scallop fishermen were rescued after their boat sank Tuesday off the coast of Pembroke.
The crew of the fishing boat Alex Shea pulled the fishermen from the 39-degree waters of Cobscook Bay. The crew had seen the Born Again going down and issued a distress call at about 11:55 a.m., a U.S. Coast Guard spokesman said.
The fishermen, who were hypothermic, were transferred to a Coast Guard vessel and then an ambulance in Eastport at around 12:30 p.m., the spokesman said.
