Five Rescued from Sinking Fishing Boat Off La Jolla Coast

Posted: Updated:
Five people have been rescued from an overloaded boat that started sinking in the ocean near La Jolla.

San Diego lifeguard Lt. John Greenhalgh says the 25-foot powerboat started taking on water around 1 p.m. today, when all passengers were in the back of the vessel.

Greenhalgh says four passengers were taken ashore by a private boat that responded to a mayday call. Three lifeguard boats responded to the scene.

The captain remained with his boat until a private salvage service arrived to tow it to Mission Bay.

No one was injured.
