Rescuers responding to sinking boat off Cape Cod


PROVINCETOWN (AP) - Coast Guard and state police divers are searching for one of two fishermen whose 42-foot scallop boat sank off the coast of Cape Cod.

Coast Guard and police officials say the vessel Twinlights capsized at about 11:30 a.m. Sunday and completely submerged after becoming entangled in fishing gear about two miles north of Provincetown.

Crewmen aboard a nearby lobster boat were able to rescue one of the fishermen.

The Coast Guard sent a rescue helicopter and two cutters to the scene, while state police sent several divers.
