Two men hurt at sea

Rescue workers take one of two injured fishermen from a Coast Guard helicopter that hoisted the pair from their boat 80 miles southwest of Manatee County on Tuesday. The Coast Guard brought Alan Wurtzel and Dwight Lewis to Albert Whitted Airport in St. Petersburg after the captain of the 52-foot fishing boat Upwind radioed about 9:30 a.m. that two crewmen had been injured, said Lt. Gwyn Patterson. It was unclear how the two were hurt. Lewis was treated at Bayfront Medical Center and released. Wurtzel was admitted but his condition was unavailable Tuesday. The men's ages and addresses were not released.
