KEANSBURG, N.J. — The Coast Guard has rescued four men stranded in a boat in rough seas off the New Jersey shore.

A heavy weather boat crew arrived at the scene off Keansburg Sunday to find the 22-foot vessel in an unseaworthy condition. Winds were blowing at 34 mph (54 kph) and seas were 3 to 5 feet (1.5 meters).

The men were safely returned to a dock.
