ENCINITAS (CBS 8) - Two boaters are safe on dry land after their vessel lost power in rough waters off Encinitas.

Lifeguards received a distress call after 11 a.m. Wednesday about a fishing boat in distress about a mile and half off the coast.

It was getting knocked around in the water, and one of the boaters was reportedly getting extremely sea sick.

An Oceanside police boat was dispatched and it towed the disabled boat back to shore.
