A Coast Guard vessel responded after the boat flipped upside down in the water.

The Coast Guard and marine officers with the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office got the two people out of the water in just minutes.

They were met on shore by paramedics and are expected to be okay.

SEATOW has been called out to try and bring the boat back in.
