A man was rescued from the water after his boat sank near the Emeryville Marina in the San Francisco Bay Wednesday afternoon, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.

The 35-year-old man from Lafayette made a distress call that his fishing boat was rapidly taking on water at about 3 p.m., officials said.
