3 people rescued off NC coast

Posted: Updated:
ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. - Three people had to be rescued from a disabled sailboat by the Coast Guard and crew of the Navy destroyer USS Cole.

It happened Sunday about 210 miles offshore of North Carolina.

A Coast Guard MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew hoisted the three from the 38-foot sailboat Wings. They were dropped off on the Cole before they flew off to another distress call.

Once that call was determined to be a non-distress situation, the Jayhawk picked the three previously rescued and took them to Coast Guard Air Station Elizabeth City.
