41 People Rescued By Coast Guard In Two Mishaps

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The Coast Guard says 15 Sea Scouts and an adult were pulled from San Francisco Bay uninjured after their catamaran capsized.

Lt. Nicole Emmons said they were wearing lifejackets and clinging to the side of the catamaran when rescuers got to them Saturday afternoon in the water near Aquatic Park.

The Sea Scouts are a division of the Boy Scouts of America, designed to teach safe boating to youngsters.

Earlier in the day, 26 people were rescued in Mexican waters near the Coronado Islands southwest of San Diego after the fishing boat they were on hit a rock.

The Coast Guard says the 21 passengers and 5 crew members hopped on life rafts after the 63-foot vessel took on water. They were taken to Shelter Island in San Diego uninjured.
