CORRECTS DATE OF CRASH TO SUNDAY, NOT MONDAY - In this Aug. 29, 2011 photo provided by the U.S. Coast Guard, a Rescue Helicopter from Airs Station Los Angeles conducts a close fly-by of the Coast Guard Cutter Halibut. A smuggler's vessel rammed a small U.S. Coast Guard boat deployed by the cutter Halibut, off the Southern California coast early Sunday Dec. 2, 2012, killing one Coast Guard member and injuring another, authorities said. The cutter was conducting an investigation into suspected smuggling near the Channel Islands west of Malibu. (AP Photo/U.S. Coast Guard/Steve Lee)
