Coast Guard crews are out searching for a lost fisherman in the waters off of South Padre Island.

The search all began when a mans swam to shore and notified Border Patrol agents that his boat capsized in Mexican waters. He told them two other fishermen were on board the same boat as well. A Coast Guard helicopter found one man clinging to the boat and airlifted him to the Coast Guard station and then to a hospital.

Rescuers are still looking for the remaining missing man and will continue that search through Wednesday or Thursday.
