Coast Guard boats and a helicopter from New Jersey rescued two men after their research vessel broke apart and started taking on water.

It happened this morning about 14 miles off the coast of Rehoboth, Delaware.

The Coast Guard says the helicopter hoisted the crewmen off the Russell W. Peterson and flew them to a hospital in Maryland. There's no word on their conditions.
