The Coast Guard assisted two men and one dog Wednesday after their boat capsized near Sabine Pass, authorities said.
Coast Guard Sector Houston-Galveston watchstanders received a report from 911 dispatchers at approximately 3 p.m. of two men and a dog distressed and stranded near the Cheniere LNG plant on the bank of Sabine Pass.
The boaters’ 16-foot skiff had reportedly capsized due to the wake from passing vessels.
Coast Guard Station Sabine Pass launched a 29-foot Response Boat-Small crew to assist.
The boat crew arrived on scene at 3:17 p.m., took aboard the two men and their dog, and transported them to a nearby boat launch.
One of the boaters reportedly sustained minor injuries but did not require medical assistance.
According to the Coast Guard, the vessel’s owner will arrange for its salvage.
