The call came in to the Coast Guard shortly before noon. A man was clinging to the hull of the capsized boat and another man had been separated from the boat and needed help.
A Coast Guard chopper and crew quickly arrived on the scene. The man who was clinging onto the catamaran was assisted by a good Samaritan, while the man who had become separated was hoisted out of the water and into the Coast Guard helicopter.
He was checked out and then transported to the La Porte Municipal Airport.
