4 Rescued From Fishing Boat That Ran Aground on Ocean Beach

Four people were rescued from a boat that ran aground in Ocean Beach Thursday night, the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department (SDFD) confirmed.

The driver of the 28-foot fishing boat misjudged the entrance to the Mission Bay Channel, and the boat wound up ashore on Dog Beach at around 9 p.m., said SDFD spokesperson Monica Munoz. 

A rescue boat helped the four people on the vessel safely disembark. No one was injured, the SDFD said. Officials do not believe alcohol was involved in the crash. It appears to have been a mistake, said Munoz.
