SEBASTIAN, Fla. -- Four people were rescued after their boat capsized Sunday morning.

At 11:17 a.m., two good Samaritans helped the four people out of the water after their 14-foot Boston Whaler capsized 1 mile south of the Sebastian Inlet.

A volunteer with Indian River County law enforcement and officials with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission also assisted.

The capsized boat was towed to a boat salvage yard by Sea Tow.

The U.S. Coast Guard also assisted and checked to see if there were any hazards to navigation in the area.
