BOSTON — Coast Guard and local fire department crews rescued three people Friday morning after their vessel ran aground at the mouth of the Merrimack River in Newburyport.

At around 7:30 a.m. watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector Boston received notification that the 32-foot pleasure craft Warthog ran aground and two of the three people aboard sustained lacerations, and possible fractures.

A 29-foot rescue boat crew from Coast Guard Station Merrimack River launched and recovered all three people and brought them back to the station where local emergency medical services were waiting.
