Apparently the annual trip to Mexico is no laughing matter.
Five people who were taking part in the Baja Ha-Ha sailboat rally from San Diego to Mexico were rescued by the U.S. Coast Guard Wednesday.
When the group's 40-foot sailboat capsized about 197-miles southwest of San Diego, the Coast Guard picked up a distress signal from the sailboat's emergency radio beacon and sent a helicopter to rescue them.
All five were pulled to safety from a life raft. One of the rescued individuals suffered a minor hand injury, but otherwise, everyone else was okay.
It wasn't the only rescue for the Coast Guard Wednesday. A fisherman was hospitalized after experiencing severe abdominal pain on an 85-foot sport fishing boat 240-miles south of San Diego.
When the Coast Guard got the call just before 3 a.m., they dispatched a medivan to transport the 65-year-old man to Scripps Memorial Hospital.
