CRISFIELD, Md. (AP) — The Coast Guard says one of its Baltimore-based crews rescued a 50-year-old man after his sailboat capsized in Tangier Sound near Crisfield.

The man’s wife contacted the Coast Guard around 8:20 p.m. Saturday and reported that the boat had capsized and he was sitting on top of it.

A 25-foot response boat responded, and the crew brought the man on board. No one was injured.
