LITTLE EGG INLET- The Coast Guard rescued two people aboard a 40-foot boat near Little Egg Inlet, N.J., Monday.

The Coast Guard received a call at 5:24 p.m. from a member of Tow Boat U.S. reporting a 40-foot boat had run aground and was taking on water near Little Egg Inlet.

A rescue helicopter crew from Coast Guard Air Station Atlantic City, N.J., arrived and hoisted the two people aboard the helicopter and transported them to the air station where they were transferred to awaiting medical personnel.

"They both had life jackets on and were prepared when we arrived on scene," said Lt. Jeffrey Sullens, the pilot of the rescue helicopter.
