Coast Guard crews by air and sea and a good Samaritan came to the rescue of a flooded fishing vessel off the Maine coast.

The Coast Guard’s Northern New England Command Center in Portland received a distress call just after 5 a.m. Sunday from the crew aboard the Two Megs fishing boat that their engine room was flooded.

A helicopter crew arrived on the scene – about 40 miles east of the Isle of Shoals – at about 6:40 a.m. – and dropped pumps down to the flooded vessel. A fisherman aboard the Rachel T. also arrived on the scene to help.

The Coast Guard cutter Grand Isle arrived at the scene to escort the Two Megs to Boston.
