NANTUCKET (CBS) - The Coast Guard performed a rescue at sea early Saturday morning -- and caught it all on video.

Air rescue crews medevaced a 55-year-old fisherman, who was about 120 nautical miles off Nantucket on his 67-year-old fishing boat Sassy Girl.

Fog and choppy waters made the rescue a little more difficult.

The man's identity and condition have not been released.
