Boat Overturns during Sight-Seeing Tour



    Five people were rescued after their boat capsized during a sight-seeing tour Monday afternoon, according to officials.

    The accident happened around 1:30 p.m. off the coast of Point Loma, near the tide pools. Officials told NBC 7 that four passengers hired a skipper to take them on a sight-seeing tour. The boat apparently hit the reef and flipped.

    Other boaters in the area spotted them and called for help, according to officials. Aerial pictures showed a small boat capsized in the water close to the rocky shore.

    Officials said San Diego lifeguards helped five people out of the water, but no one was hurt. Harbor Police also responded.
