South Baymouth | by Manny Paiva  

Coast Guard and CFB Trenton called after two men in distress.

A Canadian Coast Guard vessel has towed a tugboat taking on water in Lake Huron south of Manitoulin Island into South Baymouth Harbour.

The rescue co-ordination centre at C-F-B Trenton got a call late Thursday morning that the vessel was in distress after the steering failed.

A Coast Guard vessel from Tobermory and a C-130 Hercules airplane from Trenton responded and rescued the vehicle.

There were two men aboard and no injuries are reported.
