INVADERS SNATCHED FROM DEATH BY COAST GUARD - Lines heaved from a Coast Guard landing barge are grasped by survivors of a small vessel which collided with a Nazi mine close by the shores of the French invasion coast. Many of the crew were unconcious when rescued, being held safely afloat by their Kapok life jackets. The rescue of these two survivors was made by a Coast Guard LCVP running to the beach with a load of army troops from a Coast Guard assault transport.
