The Coast Guard assisted a boater aboard a disabled vessel Tuesday morning near the Mermentau Jetties in Lake Charles.
The Coast Guard Sector Houston-Galveston command center said it received a notification at 11:53 a.m. from a 69-year-old boater aboard a disabled 16-foot center console stating the seas were picking up and he was in fear of capsizing.
Watchstanders directed the launch of a Coast Guard Station Lake Charles 29-foot response boat to assist.
The RB–S crew arrived on scene, placed the vessel in tow, and transported the boater to Grand Chenier Park.
No injuries were reported.
