JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) -- A Coast Guard cutter rescued four members of a Seattle-based fishing vessel that capsized off the coast of Alaska.
The men were pulled from frigid waters Saturday around 10:55 a.m. about 75 miles northwest of Ketchikan, near Warren Island in the southeastern part of the state, the Coast Guard said in a release.
The crew belonged to the 58-foot Joycelyn.
Each member had a floatation device, but only the boat's owner, Dennis Haldane, 50, was wearing a survival suit.
The others suffered from hypothermia.
The other crewmen were identified as Dennis Parsens, 49, John H. Dicks, 30, and Lester Nelson, 56. Their hometowns were not immediately known.
All were taken to a hospital in nearby Craig. Their conditions were not immediately known.
An undetermined amount of fuel from the vessel spilled into the water, Chief Petty Officer Jeff Prince said.
