SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The U.S. Coast Guard held a ceremony Thursday honoring a Point Loma fisherman and his crew for their role in saving the lives of 11 Chinese sailors.

The injured survivors were found in a life raft floating near their burning ship 1,500 miles off the coast of Hawaii back in May.
