SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla.-- Two men had to be rescued when their boat capsized in a Seminole County lake Saturday morning.

The men told officials the boat started taking on water then overturned about 10 minutes later.

A rescue helicopter spotted the boaters and deployed emergency inflatable devices to keep them afloat until a rescue boat arrived.

The men made their way to the boat where rescue crews grabbed them out of the water.

The rescue was recorded by the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office.
