Coast Guard rescues injured boater off Anclote Key

TARPON SPRINGS — The U.S. Coast Guard assisted a 54-year-old boater who was injured after being ejected from a 16-foot pleasure craft late Sunday morning off Anclote Key.

The Coast Guard station in St. Petersburg received the call about 10:45 a.m. and responded to the area, a mile east of southern tip of Anclote Key, according to Petty Officer Michael De Nyse.

The crew arrived around 11:15 a.m. and transported the man to an emergency medical unit, which then took him to a local hospital.

The man, who is from New Port Richey, was in pain, but his injuries did not appear to be life-threatening, De Nyse said.

Anclote Key is 3 miles off the coast of Tarpon Springs.
