The 65 foot long fishing vessel Captain John sank off La Push, Washington. The fishing vessel alerted the Coast Guard that it was taking on water and the pumps on board were unable to keep up with the flooding. The Coast Guard dispatched a helicopter along with a 47 foot long motor lifeboat to the scene. The helicopter arrived on scene and advised the crew to abandon ship into the vessel’s life raft. The lifeboat was able to rescue all five crew from the liferaft and brought them to La Push. No reports of injuries. The Captain John sank in 2000 feet of water with its cargo of 70,000 pounds of fish and 800 tons of fuel. A small oil sheen was spotted over the wreck. Authorities have launched an investigation.
