The 38 foot long fishing vessel Southern Comfort ran aground while proceeding through Barnegat Light Inlet, New Jersey. The vessel had struck the rocks and suffered water ingress. The six people on board quickly alerted the Coast Guard before abandoning into the ship’s life raft before the fishing vessel sank. The Coast Guard dispatched to rescue boats to the scene and rescued all six people safely. No reports of injuries. The Southern Comfort sank with 350 gallons of diesel fuel on board which is a concern for possible release of pollution into the water.
