Strong winds and heavy seas dumped into the ocean two men who said they were fishermen from Bluefields, Nicaragua, said the Servicio Nacional de Guardacostas.
The coast guard said that the men were rescued in the outer harbor by an oil tanker that was leaving Moín Wednesday morning. The coast guard sent a launch to retrieve the pair.
Both men said they were Jamaicans, said the coast guard. They were identified as Peter Reynolds, 31, and Daley Rollar, 39. The coast guard said they were on the 40-foot boat when it overturned.
