Three people and their dog rescued after boat capsizes

The Coast Guard and NC Marine Patrol rescued three people and their dog Wednesday afternoon after their vessel capsized in Pamlico Sound.

Authorities got the call about 4 p.m. from the stranded boaters and immediately launched aid.

North Carolina Marine Patrol Officer Jeff Moore set off in his shallow water skiff as well, the Coast Guard said in a Facebook post.

“Upon arriving on scene with the capsized vessel, Marine Patrol quickly recovered all three survivors and their dog,” the post said.

The three boaters and their yellow Labrador retriever were brought back to the Coast Guard station at Oregon Inlet in good condition.

“Bravo Zulu to Officer Jeff Moore of N.C Marine Patrol for his swift response and assistance this afternoon!” the Coast Guard wrote.
