CORPUS CHRISTI — The Coast Guard rescued three mariners aboard a disabled vessel taking on water near Matagorda, Texas, Monday morning.

Coast Guard Sector/Air Station Corpus Christi watchstanders received a report of a disabled shrimping vessel that was taking on water approximately two miles from the Matagorda jetties.

A Station Port O'Connor 45-foot Response Boat-Medium boat crew was launched.

The mariners contacted the command center via cellular phone and informed them that they would be abandoning the vessel. Watchstanders instructed the mariners to ignite a flare to make the RB-M crew aware of their location.

Once on-scene the three mariners were taken from the water onto the RB-M and then transported to Station Port O'Connor. There were no reported injuries.

The vessel remains partially submerged in Matagorda Bay approximately 300-yards from shore.  A Safety Marine Information Broadcast has been issued to mariners in the area. The owner of the vessel has made vessel salvage arrangements.
