Watch the Coast Guard rescue four adults and a child after their boat capsized off North Carolina


Coast Guard Rescues 5 People Off North Carolina

A Coast Guard rescued five people after their boat capsized off the coast of North Carolina Thursday.

The Coast Guard said in a news release that the command center received a call that a boat had overturned with four adults and a 4-year-old child about 3 miles (5 kilometers) off Wrightsville Beach.

A boat from the Coast Guard arrived 10 minutes later and rescued the people, all of whom were wearing life jackets.

No one was hurt. A towboat went to the scene to salvage the overturned 22-foot (7-meter) boat.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
