CURTIS BAY, Md. (AP) — Anne Arundel County fire officials say two people were rescued from Curtis Creek after their boat struck a bridge.

The Capital reports that a 47-year-old man and 24-year-old woman were rescued near the U.S. Coast Guard yard on Sunday night.

Fire department spokesman Capt. Russ Davies says personnel were called to the Coast Guard yard on Hawkins Point Road, where the Coast Guard had pulled the man and woman from the water. Davies says one was clinging to the side of the boat and the other was in the water when the Coast Guard rescued them.

Davies says both were taken to Shock Trauma in Baltimore with injuries that were considered serious, but not life-threatening.
