Authorities say two adults and two children have been rescued from their sinking boat off Santa Catalina Island.

The U.S. Coast Guard sent a rescue boat and helicopter to the stricken 45-foot motor yacht, which took on water shortly after it left Avalon Harbor on Wednesday.

The Coast Guard along with a Baywatch Avalon vessel helped pump water from the yacht and towed it back to the harbor.

The passengers' conditions were not immediately known.
