Pair rescued from Saginaw Bay

Posted: Updated:

The U.S. Coast Guard says its crews have rescued two people from a sinking boat in Lake Huron.

The rescue happened about 5:20 p.m. Saturday, about two miles east of Channel Island in the lake's Saginaw Bay.

The Coast Guard isn't identified those it rescued.

In a statement from its Cleveland office, the Coast Guard says a radio monitor at Coast Guard Station Saginaw River in Essexville, Mich., got notice about 5 p.m. that two people were on an 18-foot pleasure craft rapidly taking on water.

The Coast Guard says a rescue crew aboard a 25-foot Response Boat-Small found the aft section of the pleasure boat filled more than half-way with water.

The agency says those on the boat were rescued, and their boat was towed to shore.
