VIDEO: Fishing crew rescued off Scottish coast

Last week, a British coastguard crew hoisted five men aboard a 76-foot fishing boat as it sank rapidly off the Scottish coast in rough weather.

All of the fishermen survived because of the professional efficiency of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency rescuers, who clearly got there in the nick of time.

The coastguard was notified on Jan. 20 that the Iuda Naofa was taking on water 48 miles north of the Butt of Lewis.

Two of the crewmembers were airlifted to another nearby vessel, the Star of Hope. The other three were airlifted to Western Isles Hospital to be treated for mild hypothermia.
