SAN FRANCISCO—A 12-foot aluminum boat capsized in the San Francisco Bay west of Alcatraz Island, according to Lt. Johnathan Baxter, who posted on the San Francisco Fire Department’s Twitter page.
Shortly before 3 p.m. on Sunday, November 15, Lt. Baxter said the San Francisco Fire Department, the United States Coast Guard, and the San Francisco Police Department Marine 7 Unit received a call about a capsized vessel in the San Francisco Bay.
San Francisco Fire Rescue Boat 1 found that another 18-foot pleasure craft rescued two adults off the sinking boat, Baxter noted. Both adults were moved to the San Francisco authorities’ boat, evaluated by the paramedics, and considered to be in a healthy condition.
“All victims located and safe on rescue boat one and being evaluated by medics@USCGPACAREA will be checking on the capsized vessel https://t.co/LoITVhezIT,” the SFFD tweeted.
It was previously reported that search and rescue operations were in place because two people were rescued, and one was missing. Lt. Johnathan Baxter indicated that the third person was found.
“A third adult male was missing at this time and was shortly located safely on the shoreline of Alcatraz Island and transferred to our vessel,” the SFFD said. According to Lt. Baxter, the paramedics examined the man and judged him to be in a healthy condition.
