Coast Guard responds to grounded vessel
Coast Guard Air Station Sitka responds to the grounded fishing vessel Karen Jean last Monday. Two other Good Samaritan vessels and crews also responded and proceeded to the scene. The Karen Jean began its journey in Wrangell, transiting to Ketchikan when the grounding occurred, and the four persons on board did not sustain any injuries. The vessel did not take on water, and the operator did not observe any significant damage to his vessel.
