2 missing after Texas boat collision
Two fishermen are missing after a pair of boats collided off the coast of Galveston, Texas.
The US Coast Guard was notified of four people in the water at 3:35 p.m. Tuesday after an 81-foot fishing vessel called Pappy’s Pride collided with the 600-foot chemical tanker Bow Fortune and capsized, the Coast Guard said in a news release.
Two Coast Guard vessels responded immediately and were assisted by a “good Samaritan” vessel in pulling two fishermen from the water. One of the people pulled from the water was unresponsive, a Coast Guard spokesperson said.
Both were transported to a nearby medical facility.
