The Coast Guard has rescued four men whose 19-foot aluminum boat swamped in heavy seas as they were returning from a hunting trip northwest of Cordova.

The men sent a distress call Thursday before abandoning their boat and taking their dinghy to shore.

A Coast Guard helicopter located the men on a shoreline off Orca Inlet and hoisted them off the beach. They were taken to the Cordova Community Hospital for evaluation.
