SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A woman and her two dogs were rescued from a flooding sailboat near Zuniga Jetty in San Diego Bay that was in danger of running aground due to wind, rain and rough seas, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.
The woman made a distress call from the boat which was drifting toward the rocks. A Coast Guard crew in a 41-foot utility boat responded within minutes, took the woman and her dogs off the flooding boat, and towed it to Shelter Island about 1:20 p.m. Saturday, officials said.
Boaters should exercise caution during inclement weather and keep proper safety equipment aboard their vessels for use in case of emergency, officials said.
Zuniga Jetty is a notorious boating hazard on the east side of the Silver Gate entrance to San Diego Bay. The rocks are mostly-submerged, and prevailing winds can drive sailboats into the hazard, according to Coast Guard maps.
