Two people and two dogs were rescued Monday from a boat that was taking on water near Cudjoe Key, the United States Coast Guard said.
Watch standers said they received a distress call from a 40-foot trawler, to which they sent a response boat and a helicopter to assist.
Coast Guard officials said the response teams arrived around 7 p.m. and hoisted the two people and the dogs aboard the Coast Guard vessel. They were then taken to the Key West International Airport with no reported injuries.
