The Coast Guard rescues two people Sunday, March 8, 2015, from a sinking boat approximately 35 miles southeast of Ocean Isle Beach, N.C. The Coast Guard received an EPIRB alert from the vessel and contacted watchstanders at Shaw Air Force Base who contacted the South Carolina Air National Guard’s 169th Fighter Wing who confirmed the location of the vessel with the help of F-16s conducting training offshore.
