SCOTLAND, Md. (AP) — The Coast Guard says two people have died and four others have been rescued after a boat capsized in St. Mary’s County.

Petty Officer David Marin, a Coast Guard spokesman, says six people were pulled from the water after a 25-foot vessel overturned Saturday near Point Lookout State Park in Scotland.

Marin didn’t immediately know the names or ages of the two people who died or have details on how they died.

A relative of one of the boat’s passengers had called the charter captain to report that her sibling had said the boat was taking on water. Local and state crews also responded.

A Coast Guard spokesman says the passengers include a couple, their teenage son and three friends.
