Coast Guard Rescues Two After Boats Collide

The Coast Guard says it rescued two people after fishing boats collided about 35-miles northwest of Dry Tortugas.

Two men from the fishing vessel "Miss Amy J" were transferred to Lower Keys Medical Center by a Coast Guard Jayhawk helicopter and the Cutter Isaac Mayor.

It was the captain of the "Southern Bell II" who radioed the Coast Guard to alert them of the collission.

The Coast Guard says the collision is still under investigation.
