The fishing vessel Yankee ran aground on Error Island near Sitka, Alaska. A passenger on board had contacted a friend via text message that the vessel was in trouble. The friend then contacted the Coast Guard in Juneau who dispatch rescuers to the scene. When the rescuers arrived they found the vessel high and dry and in danger of falling over onto its side with the master of the vessel under the influence. The Coast Guard requested that the master and his passenger to leave the vessel, but the master of the vessel refused to leave. The authorities force the man from the Yankee and was later arrested. The Coast Guard reported that the hull of the vessel was undamaged and Yankee would be refloated on the next high tide.
