    A U.S. Coast Guard crew rescued two people after their boat became lost in the fog off the shore of San Diego overnight.

    The passenger on the boat called San Diego Harbor Police after a collision with something in the fog, injuring the boat’s driver.

    With the assistance of a U.S. Customs and Border Protection boat crew, a 33-foot response boat crew from Station Diego was able to locate the 22-foot vessel near the entrance to San Diego Bay, according to a USCG news release.

    "Before I went on the boat, the boat driver was face down," said Petty Officer 2nd Class Brian La Vigne. “He had a serious cut on his head was drifting in and out of consciousness.”

    The driver of the boat may have hit his head after the boat crashed into rocks off the coast of North Island.
    The Coast Guard towed the boat to Shelter Island.
