Fishing boat that ran aground in Southern California towed to Port of LA

A 58-foot fishing boat that ran aground near the mouth of the Santa Ana River was refloated and towed to the Port of Los Angeles early today, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.

The trawler Pacific Bully was refloated Tuesday night and showed no significant damage or signs of having spilled fuel or oil while aground, according to Petty Officer Christine Bozeman of the Coast Guard's Los Angeles-Long Beach Sector.

The Pacific Bully arrived in the Port of Los Angeles early today, according to Bozeman.

The trawler ran aground about 3:20 a.m. Tuesday and four people aboard made it ashore unharmed, authorities said. The trawler lay beached in the surf part of the day, and workers got it refloated Tuesday evening when the tide came in, Bozeman said.
