ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - A St. Petersburg-based Coast Guard cutter has returned to its home port after rescuing 10 people in the Bahamas last week.
The Coast Guard says the Nantucket was on patrol off the east coast of Florida on Thursday when it responded to a mayday call from a cargo ship called Mystic. The ship had capsized and broken into pieces near Damas Cay in the Bahamas.
The Nantucket crew helped rescue four of the Mystic crew members from a small rescue boat; six other crew members and a dog were pulled to safety using a helicopter.
