CORTEZ, Fla. -- Pictures were released Monday of a rescue in waters near Anna Maria Island.

According to the U.S. Coast Guard, four men were stranded when their 28 foot boat capsized Sunday, 20 nautical miles west of the island. 

One of the men radioed for help from the Coast Guard's Watchstanders.  The Coast Guard sent a 45-foot Response boat with a crew from Cortez and an MH-60 Jayhawk Helicopter crew from the Coast Guard Air Station in Clearwater in search of the men.

All four men were found clinging to the hull of the capsized boat.  No one suffered any injuries.
