The Coast Guard has rescued three people from a sinking 43-foot pleasure boat in a channel of the Columbia River in Portland, Ore.
Petty Officer Jordan Akiyama says a distress call came in Wednesday afternoon from a boat taking on water near Hayden Island. Two Coast Guard crews were training in the area and diverted to the rescue.
The three people were unhurt.
Akiyama says the boat sank in about eight feet of water. It reportedly had 200 gallons of fuel onboard but there were no reports of pollution.
