One dead, others hurt when fishing boat capsizes

A recreational crab fishing trip for a group of friends from Sacramento ended tragically when their boat overturned, killing a 71-year-old man and injuring others.

In rough seas and nearly gale force winds, the 21-foot Cabo got into trouble, took on water and then flipped. Five people on board fell into frigid water north of Bodega Bay.

Before overturning, the fishermen put out a distress call to friends in another fishing boat.
