X RATED MOVIE CREW SANK ON PLEASURE YACHT

 

Long Beach, CA - The 16 people plucked to safety in choppy waters as their 40-foot pleasure yacht sank were apparently aboard the craft to film an adult movie.

Included among the passengers rescued Thursday night was adult film star Nina Hartley, who has appeared in more than 300 hard-core skinflicks.

“Thank God for the Coast Guard is all I can say,” Hartley said.

Passengers used camera flashes and emergency flares to make themselves seen to rescue boats.

The film was saved, but all the equipment sank, said passenger David Johnson.

There were no reported injuries, although some of the passengers fell into the water before rescuers arrived, Coast Guard Petty Officer Dan Tremper said Thursday.
