Six fishermen are safe on dry land after being rescued from their sinking vessel Monday.

Rescue audio: "May day may day. This is the fishing vessel Jane Jane. (inaudible) sink sink over. Fishing vessel Jane understand you are sinking. Yeah."

The 57-foot fishing vessel Jane started taking on water about 110 miles southeast of the Big Island.

They called the Coast Guard for help and abandoned ship before getting into a life raft.

Another fishing vessel in the area is bringing them to Hawaii, where they'll meet with emergency medical services and U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
