Dramatic Coast Guard Rescue for Alaskan Fishing Boat Crew [VIDEO]

Four men from an Alaskan fishing boat are safe today after being rescued by the Coast Guard from their sinking boat.

On Wednesday morning in Litua Bay, Alaska, the captain of the Kupreanof called in a mayday, saying that the ship was taking on water.

The four men were able to act quickly and don their immersion suits and with the guidance from the rescue helicopter, get out to their life raft.

Check out the dramatic footage of the rescue courtesy of CBS’ “This Morning.”

Luckily for the fishermen, the Coast Guard was able to help facilitate this amazing rescue, and got there just in time to all the men up and out of the water just as their boat sunk completely.

Even though their Alaskan fishing boat is deep under water, quick thinking and great teamwork kept these fishermen alive to fish another day.
