Coast Guard rescues boaters after sailboat capsizes in harbor
The U.S. Coast Guard rescued three people from chilly waters Monday evening after a 15-foot sailboat capsized in the Duluth-Superior harbor. No injuries were reported.
At about 6 p.m., a small boat from the cutter Alder took in the three boaters, who reported they had been in the water for less than five minutes, according to a Coast Guard press release issued Tuesday. The water was in the mid-30s at the time, the service said.
The sailboat was righted and towed to a marina in the bay.
