Coast Guard Rescue Near Bonner Bridge

We have word Tuesday of another rescue at sea.

The Coast Guard says a 77 foot Trawler, The Sheila Rene, is back at its dock in Wanchese, after grounding 150 yards south of Bonner Bridge Friday. A Coast Guard helicopter hoisted the Sheila Rene's crew to safety Saturday morning. Coast Guard and salvage crews were finally able to get the Sheila Rene back to Wanchese Monday afternoon.

The Coast Guard says the 42-foot fishing boat Handful capsized Sunday trying to un-ground the Sheila Rene. It's still submerged.
