OCEAN CITY, N.J. (AP) - The Coast Guard says a fishing vessel that was taking on water off southern New Jersey made it safely back to shore.

Officials had received a mayday call around 12:45 p.m. Sunday from the Interlude, saying the boat was taking on water and was heading into port in Ocean City.

A Coast Guard cutter, helicopters and other boats from the Atlantic City station were sent to look for the fishing boat. But officials later learned it had made it safely back to shore, and no injuries were reported.
