Coast Guard Rescues 77-Year-Old Man Who Went Overboard

BOSTON (CBS) – The Coast Guard pulled a 77-year-old man from the waters off Centerville Beach Monday afternoon.

The man was sailing with his 19-year-old grandson when he went overboard.

The teen aboard the 30-foot boat Morning Light called 911.

A Coast Guard helicopter and boat were immediately launched.

The helicopter moved in and pulled the man from the water.

The man was wearing a life jacket, and the Coast Guard says that probably saved his life.
