CHINCOTEAGUE, Va. (AP) - A Coast Guard crew has rescued an injured woman after a pleasure boat ran aground in Tom’s Cove at Chincoteague Island.

The Coast Guard says six adults and two children were onboard the Chaser when it ran aground Wednesday morning. A woman in her 60s suffered laceration. She was transported to Peninsula Regional Hospital in Salisbury, Maryland.

Crews from Coast Guard Station Chincoteague were in the immediate area when watchstanders at Sector Hampton Roads received a distress call from the boat at 6:15 a.m. Wednesday. The Coast Guard says the crews were enforcing a safety zone for the annual Chincoteague Pony Swim.
