Coast Guard busy over the weekend

It’s the high season for recreational boating, so distress calls are far more common in summer.

The Coast Guard has rescued five men that were adrift in a small boat for days in the Pacific Ocean, according to a report by KITV News. CNN affiliate KITV reports.

The men were rescued by the crew of the motor vessel, Shourong Harmony after an HC-130 Hercules air crew from Coast Guard Air Station Barbers Point spotted the 14-foot aluminum skiff while searching, 184 miles east northeast of Teraina Island, Kiribati.

The men were reported to be in good condition once they were rescued, according to the Coast Guard.
