MARINA DEL REY, Calif. (AP) — The U.S. Coast Guard says three people were rescued off Southern California’s coast after their boat capsized.

It says its Los Angeles-Long Beach sector received a call Saturday afternoon about a 27-foot pleasure boat in distress eight miles west of Marina Del Rey.

The Coast Guard says it dispatched a helicopter crew and a boat crew to assist the Los Angeles County Fire Department in the rescue.

The Los Angeles Fire Department says a Los Angeles County Lifeguards boat transported to safety two of those rescued. A private boat transported the other person. None needed medical attention.
