CLAYTON — Four people were rescued without injuries Sunday afternoon after their 40-foot vessel ran aground between Pine Island and Bluff Island.

Coast Guard Petty Officer 2nd Class James G. Howell, based in Buffalo, said the initial distress call came in to the service’s Alexandria Bay auxiliary at 4:25 p.m. Canadian first responders also aided at the scene.

A boat from the Clayton Fire Department was able to pull people to shore two at a time without incident.

Petty Officer Howell said a salvage company is scheduled to come Monday to remove the stuck vessel.
