PT. REYES NATIONAL SEASHORE, Calif. (AP) — Seven people, including four children, have been rescued off California’s north coast after the boat they were on got caught in rough surf and capsized.
Authorities said no one was seriously injured in Sunday’s ordeal in Tomales Bay, but six of the seven rescued was taken to a hospital.
The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports five people, including a 3-year-old boy and an 11-year-old girl, were clinging to the hull of the boat when rescuers in helicopters arrived to pluck them from their perch. Sonoma County Sheriff’s Sgt. Ed Hoener said they weren’t wearing life jackets
Rescuers then towed the boat to safety and cut into the hull to pull two other children, ages 6 and 8, who were trapped inside the 25-foot boat’s cabin.
