Lifeguards rescued a group of eight people from a rented 40-foot power boat in La Jolla Sunday.
Officials said the rescue took place around 12:30 p.m. about a mile off shore at Windansea Beach.
A boat's engine overheated, prompting the rescue by lifeguards who transported all passengers aboard the vessel to shore.
The boat -- which was a rental -- was towed back to land.
No injuries were reported.
