Two men drowned and seven people were taken to the hospital after the boat they were on flipped over in San Diego Bay near Shelter Island Sunday afternoon, the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department and Coast Guard reported.

The victims were aboard a 35-foot sailboat when it capsized shortly after 5 p.m., San Diego Fire-Rescue Department spokesman Maurice Luque said. All of those aboard, including two children who appeared to be from 10 to about 13 years old, were thrown into the water. Witnesses said several nearby boaters tried to assist the victims while Harbor Police vessels patrolling the bay raced to the scene.
