Five people rescued after boat capsizes

Coast Guard and Maryland Natural Resources Police rescued five people from the Chesapeake Bay after their boat capsized Tuesday evening.

The five Virginia residents were riding in a 17-foot Bayliner when its engine stopped, said Cpl. Ken Turner with the Natural Resources Police. Though the weather was mild, choppy waves eventually swamped the boat because its bilge pump would not function, Turner said. "There wasn't really anything they could've done," he said.

A commercial freighter crew spotted the five - all wearing life jackets - in the water south of the Bay Bridge. The freighter captain contacted authorities just after 7 p.m., Turner said, and the Coast Guard was on the scene within minutes.

The boat was towed to Queen Anne's County. One person was treated for mild hypothermia.
