45 San FranciscoALAMEDA, Calif. — The Coast Guard rescued 10 people after a boat sank near Mandeville Island Sunday at approximately 9:15 p.m.

Coast Guard Sector San Francisco command center watchstanders received a call at 9:15 p.m., from Coast Guard Maritime Safety and Security Team San Francisco members that a ski boat had sunk in the vicinity of a fireworks display.

The boat crew responded to the scene and retrieved all 10 people from the water with no reported injuries. The rescued people were transferred to a Coast Guard Auxiliary vessel and taken to Buckley Cove.
