HONOLULU, Hawaii - A U.S. Coast Guard HC-130 Hercules observes the crew of the commercial vessel Kalamazoo as they rescue the crew of the dismasted 42-foot sailing vessel Coco Haz III about 656 miles off Hawaii Dec. 29, 2019. The Coco Haz III was dismasted Dec. 19 and a lack of contact prompted a search across the Pacific. The Japanese-flagged vessel was en route from Japan to Hawaii.
