Coast Guard rescues 3 from sinking boat
A commercial marine assistance company called the Coast Guard about 3:30 p.m. Sunday as the 19-foot bayliner was taking on water, which the on board pumps could not keep up with, Coast Guard officials said. The Mexican Navy also responded.
A Coast Guard crew in a 45-foot craft removed the three boaters, all U.S. citizens, from their vessel around 4:10 p.m. Sunday and took them to the San Diego Harbor Police dock on Shelter Island, authorities said. The commercial marine assistance company towed the bayliner to the dock, according to the Coast Guard.
