Coast Guard rescues boaters from waters off Crissy Field

A U.S. Coast Guard crew rescued six people from the waters off San Francisco's Crissy Field late Sunday morning, an agency spokesman said.

The Coast Guard received a report of an outrigger canoe taking on the water near Crissy Field shortly before 11:30 a.m., Coast Guard Ensign Jake Urrutia said.

A 47-foot motor lifeboat crew responded to the scene and found six people from the canoe in the water, he said.

The boaters were taken to Station Golden Gate to be evaluated by emergency crews waiting on shore.

Urrutia was not aware of any injuries to the six people or why the boat was taking on water.Bay Area NewscanoeSan Francisco BayU.S. Coast Guard
