    Five people -- three children and two parents -- were rescued Thursday from a small boat that began taking on water in the San Diego Bay just south of the Coronado Bay Bridge, officials said.

    U.S. Coast Guard officials received a call from the vessel in distress around 3:30 p.m. and sent crews to the scene.

    Officials say all five people aboard the boat were rescued safely, and no one was injured. It is unclear what caused the boat to take on water.

    Coast Guard crews stayed at the scene while a tow was arranged for the vessel.
