SEATTLE (AP) — The Coast Guard has rescued two mariners from a vessel that was taking on water about 30 miles (48 kilometers) west of Grays Harbor, Washington.

The U.S. Coast Guard said in a news release that an air crew responded to a call for help Wednesday afternoon from the owner of an 87-foot yacht.

Officials say a helicopter crew arrived and safely hoisted the two people from the boat.

Crews from a Coast Guard boat also responded to the vessel to monitor its condition.
