Seven rescued from burning yacht

What started out as a beautiful day on San Francisco Bay among friends, quickly turned into a nightmare; smoke started pouring out of a 43-foot motoryacht and it appears the passengers were the last to know.

"People were waving and I was waving back and not realizing that they were telling me there was smoke coming on board so we looked and very quickly put on our life jackets," passenger Heidi Kuhn told ABC 7 News.

Fortunately, two cousins out fishing for crab were nearby.
