POINT PLEASANT BEACH, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) – No one was injured when a commercial fishing boat ran aground off Point Pleasant Beach.
The Coast Guard responded to a call for help from the 77-foot Captain Gavin about a mile south of the Manasquan Inlet at 5:15 a.m. Wednesday.
Petty Officer 1st Class Nick Ameen says there were three people aboard.
Ameen says there is no apparent damage to the vessel and no signs of pollution.
The Coast Guard will continue to monitor the situation from a boat and from the beach while officials discuss the best way to free the vessel.
