BALTIMORE (AP) — The Coast Guard has rescued two boys after their 14-foot sailboat capsized off the coast of Little Cove Point near Lusby.

A crew from the Coast Guard Station St. Inigoes responded after seeing the capsized boat about 4 p.m. Tuesday. The crew rescued a 14-year-old boy and a 17-year-old boy from the water. The Coast Guard says the boys were transferred to another sailboat, where they joined their father.

Petty Officer 2nd Class James Walters says the boys were wearing life jackets, which probably saved their lives.
