Boaters rescued off Egmont Key

Multiple emergency teams responded Feb. 14 to a distress call from boaters off Egmont Key, north of Anna Maria Island in Tampa Bay.

A man, a woman and a dog were rescued from the disabled fishing boat, according to a spokesperson with the U.S. Coast Guard.

There were no injuries, but the woman told rescuers that she felt dizzy and suffered a headache.

A rescue crew from the Coast Guard in Cortez responded, as did a marine unit from St. Petersburg and a vessel from Eckerd College.
