    GLOUCESTER, Mass. - Members of the U.S. Coast Guard and Glocester Fire Department rescued three men Thursday after their lobster boat ran aground near the Eastern Point Lighthouse.

    The owner of the boat, who hasn’t been identified, alerted the Coast Guard of the situation around 4:30 a.m., and assured rescuers that no injuries were reported.

    A crew from Station Gloucester arrived, but due to the shallow water first responders were able to drive to Eastern Point Lighthouse, and walk to the stranded vessel by foot.

    Members of the Gloucester Fire Department were able to safely remove the men from the boat, and they were taken to a hospital for evaluation.

    The boat’s owner is coordinating with local salvage companies to remove the vessel during the next high tide.

    It’s unknown what caused the boat to become stuck on shore.
