MYRTLE BEACH - Two fishermen were rescued after they were found clinging to a life raft 20 miles off the coast.

News outlets reported that a fishing boat spotted the men after their 63-foot boat began taking on water near Myrtle Beach around 9:30 a.m. Friday.

The U.S. Coast Guard said a boat from Georgetown was dispatched to meet the boat and take the men back to shore for evaluation.
