Five boaters rescued off Cape Cod
MARION, Mass. —
Five boaters had to be rescued from a sinking pleasure craft Sunday morning.
Isaac Perry, the Marion harbormaster, told NBC 10 his office was notified initially around 5:45 a.m. that a boat had capsized in an area between Long Beach in Wareham and Bird Island.
Perry's crew arrived to find the boaters standing on the deck of a sinking 23-foot boat.
The group had left Wareham when the boat hit some rocks and started taking on water.
The boat was sinking in about 3 feet of water.
Perry said all the boaters were OK, except for some minor scrapes.
