Tacoma men rescued from Grays Harbor waters

A fishing boat rescued two Tacoma men who were in the water for four to five hours Sunday near Grays Harbor, the Coast Guard said.

The fishermen called Coast Guard officials shortly before noon to say they had rescued the pair, ages 53 and 72.

The Tacoma men were in a 16-foot boat that capsized when it was hit by a wave, and the incoming tide carried them toward Grays Harbor, where they were found near a buoy. Both men were wearing life jackets.

Crews treated them for signs of hypothermia at a nearby Coast Guard station before they were released.

It’s not clear where the boat sank, and boaters should look for any hazards in the Grays Harbor area, the Coast Guard said.
