Coast Guard rescues 92-year-old fisherman off Jersey Shore

The U.S. Coast Guard rescued an ailing 92-year-old man from a fishing boat off the coast of Atlantic City on Sunday.

The man was experiencing possible cardiac issues aboard Fish Finder II five miles off shore when the Coast Guard was notified.

The rescue boat brought him ashore, where he was taken by ambulance to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center in Atlantic City. He was in stable condition.

A Coast Guard spokesman wasn’t immediately able to provide information on who else was aboard the vessel.
