Boaters rescued near Lake Worth Inlet

The Coast Guard said a crew rescued three boaters after their vessel capsized near the Lake Worth Inlet Thursday.

A distress call was made from one of the passengers around 10:15 a.m. that the 23-foot boat was taking on water and the engines weren't working, according to the Coast Guard.

A crew from the Lake Worth Inlet Coast Guard station located three people sitting on the boat's hull, the Coast Guard said.

They were identified as Buck McTee, 44, Lucas Alan, 34, and Chris Marcello, 56.

The trio was taken to Phil Foster Park Boat Ramp. There were no reported injuries.

The Coast Guard said commercial salvage crews and the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office assisted in the search. 

The capsized boat was towed to shore.
