Two men were rescued after their boat capsized in rough seas off South Jersey.
Coast Guard officials tell the Asbury Park Press that the men made a mayday call around 8 a.m. Monday from their 31-foot Fountain powerboat. At the time, they were in waters off of Barnegat Light.
A 47-foot Coast Guard boat pulled one of the men to safety, while crew members from The Jamaica II, a Brielle-based party fishing boat, rescued the other boater. Their names were not released.
Both rescued boaters were “wet and cold,” but neither man was injured. But a second Coast Guard boat became disabled during the rescue after a small fire broke out on board.
The Coast Guard didn't immediately identify either man.
