Coast Guard rescues 4 men stranded on boat in rough seas off Jersey shore

KEANSBURG, New Jersey (WABC) -- The Coast Guard rescued four men stranded on a boat in rough seas off the New Jersey coast.

Crews responded to a 911 call about a disabled boat in Raritan Bay Sunday.

The Coast Guard couldn't tow the boat due to 35-mile-per hour winds and waves up to five feet high.

The crew pulled the four men to safety from the 22-foot-boat that they say was meant for a lake, not the ocean.

The men were safely returned to a dock.
