    Two people were rescued from a fishing vessel Sunday afternoon off Jonesport, Maine, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.

    The U.S. Coast Guard Northeast reported the incident at about 2 p.m. via Twitter. They said two crew members aboard the fishing vessel, Overtimer, needed to abandon ship and used survival suits.

    Another fishing vessel, Bad Behavior, responded and recovered the crew safely.

    No injuries were reported and the Coast Guard sent crews to assist. The Bad Behavior was reportedly taking the rescued crew to shore.

    The Coast Guard said they were going to investigate the incident and check the scene for pollution.

    The USCG originally reported there were three crew members aboard the ship.
