FLORIDA (NBC/U.S. COAST GUARD) — The Coast Guard has released video of a high-seas rescue off the coast of Florida.

The Coast Guard was notified Sunday that two fishermen failed to return from a weekend fishing trip.

A search was launched Monday, and at around 8:30 a.m., the two men were spotted clinging to the hull of their capsized vessel 12 miles off shore.

A Good Samaritan then arrived on scene and pulled the men out of the water.

Both men are reportedly in good health.
