NEW ORLEANS The Coast Guard rescued two brothers tonight who were
duck hunting near Delacroix when their boat went out with the tide.
Mark and Vayou (VI-yoo) DeLaney were in their small aluminium boat
when the tide went out, taking them with it. They got stuck in the
mud, but had a cell phone and called the Coast Guard.
There was already a Coast Guard air crew flying nearby, and they
were diverted to the DeLaneys' location. The two brothers, along with
their dog, were hoisted onto the helicopter and taken to shore.
