WACHAPREAGUE, Va. (AP) - Coast Guard members rescued four adults and two children after a boat ran aground near Wachapreague.

No injuries were reported.

The Coast Guard says the 18-foot pleasure craft ran aground Monday evening in Finney Creek and was on an oyster bed.

The passengers were hoisted aboard a helicopter from Coast Guard Air Station Elizabeth City in North Carolina and taken to Accomack County Airport.

The Coast Guard said Tuesday in a news release that the boat is anchored and its navigation lights are on.
