MIAMI, Fla. - Two people were rescued at sea southwest of Abaco, Bahamas by a Coast Guard helicopter crew Monday, according to the Coast Guard.
Nick Carullo and Calvin Koch were hoisted from their disabled 34-foot vessel, Dupleta, approximately two miles southwest of Abaco.
The Miami Seventh Coast Guard District command center received the report of the disabled vessel and launched an aircrew, with Coast Guard Air Station Clearwater, Fla., currently deployed for Operation Bahamas Turks and Caicos, to recover the men from their vessel and transport them to Nassau.
Operation Bahamas, Turks and Caicos is a combined Coast Guard, DEA and Government of Bahamas partnership to combat drug smuggling to and from the Bahamas, according to the Coast Guard.
