Coast Guard rescues man, two children stranded in Cross Bayou

NEW PORT RICHEY — A man and two children were rescued from Cross Bayou early this morning after their personal watercrafts ran aground, the Coast Guard reports.

Another man who walked to the shore told Pasco deputies that the man, 39, and two boys, 10 and 12, were stranded in shallow water, which prevented a deputy from reaching them by boat.

An MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter flew from the Coast Guard Air Station in Clearwater and hoisted the group aboard about 12:45 a.m. They were unharmed.
