The Coast Guard rescued six people from near Sand Island in the Mississippi Sound on Saturday, including a woman who required medical attention.
At about 6 p.m. the Coast Guard was notified of a disabled vessel anchored near Sand Island with a 28-year-old woman aboard going in and out of consciousness, a press release said. Sand Island is a very small island between Horn and Petit Bois islands, the Coast Guard said.
Watchstanders launched a boat from the Pascagoula station with local emergency medical services aboard.
The boat arrived about 6:30 p.m. and transported the six people back to the station, where an ambulance took the woman to get medical care, the release said.
Never miss a local story.
The owner of the boat remained aboard and was towed by a friend to Bayou Casotte.
