STUART, Fla. — The U.S. Coast Guard rescued three people from a sinking boat off Florida’s Atlantic coast.

The agency said in a news release that the 27-foot boat started taking on water off the coast of Stuart on Saturday afternoon. A good Samaritan called the Coast Guard.

A Coast Guard crew “dewatered” the boat and escorted it back to port without further incident.

No further details were immediately available.
