Two surveyors were rescued after their boat capsized near the coastline in Brookings Wednesday morning.

The Coast Guard, Curry Sheriff's, Cal-Ore Life Flight, Harbor Fire Department and plenty of good Samaritans worked to keep the boat close to the shoreline.

One man was able to swim to shore.

Another was trapped for almost an hour underneath the boat breathing from an air pocket.

Both men were from Coos Bay.
