Fishing boat runs aground off Point Pleasant Beach

POINT PLEASANT BEACH, N.J. (AP) — No one was injured when a commercial fishing boat ran aground off Point Pleasant Beach.

The Coast Guard responded to a call for help from the 77-foot Capt. Gavin about a mile south of the Manasquan Inlet at 5:15 a.m. Wednesday.

Petty Officer 1st Class Nick Ameen says there were three aboard.

Ameen says there is no apparent damage to the vessel and no signs of pollution.

The Coast Guard says the boat’s owner is working to get a tug boat to free the vessel.
