(CNN) — Sailors from the aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman rescued eight Iranian mariners in the Arabian Sea on Wednesday, the U.S. Navy said Thursday.

An F/A-18 attack jet spotted the Iranians’ burning vessel about 50 miles from the carrier, according to a statement from the Navy’s Fifth Fleet headquarters in Bahrain. Two helicopters were dispatched to assist the stranded sailors, with a search-and-rescue swimmer dropped into the water for the men.

Doctors aboard the Truman found the men had no significant injuries and provided them with food and water, the Navy said. All eight will remain aboard “until arrangements can be made for their safe return home,” it said.
