    The U.S. Coast Guard says it has rescued four people from a sinking boat about 18 miles (29 kilometers) off the coast of Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts.

    Officials say the captain of the Sea Star called for help around 6:20 p.m. Wednesday, saying the boat was taking on water and the crew was wearing immersion suits.

    A helicopter arrived, and the aircrew determined the boat could not be saved. The fishermen were ordered into the water, and a rescue swimmer helped airlift the crew to safety.

    The fishermen were brought to Cape Cod, where officials say they appear to be in good health.
