Children adrift in boat in Alaska rescued
The Coast Guard says the boys were wearing life jackets and stayed calm after going adrift in the skiff Monday in Saxman Harbor near Ketchikan. Water conditions were calm.
Ketchikan police notified the Coast Guard that the parents of the boys reported the children had gone adrift.
A Coast Guard response boat crew found the children and safely delivered them to their parents, with the skiff in tow.
Petty Officer 1st Class Matthew Degnon says the crew was able to arrive at the scene within three minutes.
