SAN DIEGO — The U.S. Coast Guard assisted three boaters about four miles southwest of the Coronado Islands, Mexico, after their boat began taking on water, Sunday.

A commercial marine assistance company contacted the Coast Guard around 3:30 p.m., reporting a 19-foot bayliner was taking on water and the on board pumps were unable to keep up with the flooding.

A Coast Guard Station San Diego 45-foot Response Boat crew was dispatched and removed the three U.S. citizens from the sinking vessel around 4:10 p.m., and brought them to the San Diego Harbor Police dock.

The commercial marine assistance company towed the vessel to the Harbor Police dock.

The Mexican Navy also responded to the scene.

The on scene weather was 3-5 foot seas and 7-10 knot winds.
