Coast Guard rescues brothers who got stuck duck hunting

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.
