Coast Guard Repeats: 'Just Wear It'!
November 1, 2015
The Coast Guard rescued two people recently after their boat reportedly capsized from a ship's wave north of the Texas City dike near the Houston Ship Channel.
A Good Samaritan called Sector Houston-Galveston watchstanders at 5:08 .m., on VHF-FM channel 16, to report the two people and their capsized boat in need of assistance. Watchstanders launched Station Galveston's response boat crew who recovered them in good health at 5:31 p.m. and transported them to Siever's Cove.
"We'd like to emphasize to the public to have your life-jackets on deck and readily accessible if not on you already," said Petty Officer 2nd class Hans Schultz, the Station Galveston boat coxswain.
