Rescues.

On 10 June, the U.S. Coast Guard's command center in Mobile, Ala., received a distress call reporting that a vessel seven miles southeast of Panama City was disabled and taking on water in heavy seas caused by Tropical Storm Arlene. An HH-60 Jayhawk helicopter rescue crew was dispatched from Coast Guard Aviation Training Center to rescue the five crew members aboard the vessel. The Coast Guard Cutter Seahawk, an 87-foot patrol boat from Carrabelle, Fla., was also dispatched to assist in the rescue. The five crew members were ordered to abandon ship, and with the assistance of the helicopter's deployed rescue swimmer, they were safely hoisted into the aircraft.
