In an article in AP News:10 out of 26 People From Sunken apan Tour Boat Confirmed Dead,
there is a sentence as followed.

Following an intensive search involving six patrol boats, several aircraft and divers that went through the night,
rescuers on early Sunday found four people near the tip of Shiretoko Peninsula and later six more in the same area,
about 14 kilometers (8.7 miles) north from where the boat sent a distress call. Some of them were plucked from the sea,
while others were washed onto the rocky coast.

Question) Is the bold phrase shoud be like "were plucked into the sea" considering the situation?

Thank you.
