PORTSMOUTH, Va. (AP) — A Coast Guard helicopter crew rescued three people after they got lost on Hog Island on Virginia’s Eastern Shore.
The Coast Guard said Monday that a woman, her daughter and another girl were on Hog Island on Sunday when they became disoriented.
A helicopter crew from Air Station Elizabeth City in North Carolina found the trio around 9:30 p.m. Sunday.
The crew hoisted the woman and the girls into the MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter and took them to Accomack County Airport in Melfa.
