Five men from Aranguez were spotted by passengers on the water taxi just off Port of Spain.

A passenger on the water taxi alerted the coast guard about the men, and two interceptors were deployed from the Hyatt to rescue them.

According to the Coast Guard, the men said they were fishing in a small vessel when a wave capsized the boat.

The men said they had been out at sea for three hours before the water taxi spotted them and stopped to render assistance at 3:45 pm.
