Members of Texas A&M Task Force 1 rescued three people from a sinking sailboat in Corpus Christi over the weekend.
The 80-person College Station-based search and rescue team was activated in response to Hurricane Hanna last week and responded to the sinking boat in the Corpus Christi marina at the request of the U.S. Coast Guard and the Corpus Christi Fire Department, according to a news release from the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service, which oversees the team.
The water rescue squad, which also included emergency responders from Washington County, rescued two people in their 80s and the 40-year-old boat owner as it was sinking in rough waters and 65 mph winds.
