3 Rescued After Tiny Boat Capsizes in San Francisco Bay

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Three people were rescued after their tiny boat capsized in San Francisco Bay near Alcatraz Island, authorities said.

The sinking of the 12-foot (3.6-meter) aluminum boat west of Alcatraz was reported shortly before 3 p.m. Sunday, said San Francisco Fire Department Lt. Jonathan Baxter.

A rescue boat arriving on the scene found that two of the people had been rescued by a pleasure boat.

The third person was later found on the shoreline of Alcatraz.

All three were examined by paramedics and were OK, Baxter said.
