SAN FRANCISCO (KSEE/KGPE) — Three people were rescued by the Coast Guard and others, including a Good Samaritan, from San Francisco Bay on Tuesday after their boat capsized near Treasure Island.
The Coast Guard received a distress call from a Good Samaritan on their vessel Sun Dance around 9:30 a.m. after they came across a capsized boat and three people in the water.
Two Guard helicopters doing training in the area and a boat crew responded to the incident along with San Francisco fire and police departments.
The helicopter crews deployed a rescue swimmer, while the Good Samaritan took the three people aboard their ship before transferring them to the Coast Guard boat crew.
