BLOCK ISLAND, R.I. (WPRI) — About 10 miles off the coast of Block Island, the U.S. Coast Guard responded to a collision involving a 40-foot lobster boat called “Squeeze Play” and a yacht named “Lucia.”

According to officials, a total of four people were on the yacht and two people were on the lobster boat.

The Coast Guard says members of the “Squeeze Play” reportedly helped bring the two people from the Lucia to their lobster boat, after a hole was reported to be in the bow of the yacht.

A 45-foot boat crew from Station Point Judith and an air crew from Air Station Cape Cod also responded.

The two people on the “Lucia” were brought back to the port by members of the boat crew.

No injuries were reported.
