MIAMI — Three people are safe after the Coast Guard rescued them from their capsized vessel near Key Biscayne, Florida, just after midnight Sunday.
Coast Guard Sector Miami watchstanders received a call via VHF-radio from one of the people aboard the vessel stating that their vessel was taking on water six nautical miles southeast of Key Biscayne. Coast Guard immediately diverted a Coast Guard Air Station Miami MH-65 Dolphin rescue helicopter crew who arrived within 20 minutes to find the vessel capsized and the three people in the water.
A rescue swimmer was deployed who safely recovered all three people. The individuals were brought back to Air Station Miami where emergency medical services were waiting. No injuries were reported.
