Thirteen rescued from sinking yacht off Fort Lauderdale

The United States Coast Guard said 13 people were rescued from a 106-foot yacht that sank in the waters off Fort Lauderdale, Fla., on Monday evening.

According to Sea Tow Marine Towing and Salvage, the Serena III yacht sent out a distress call shortly before 6 p.m. Monday about the boat taking on water and less than two hours later the yacht was gone.

“It just gradually took on more and more water and then it went down by the stern and rolled,” said Sea Tow Captain Tim Morgan. “Then it went under the waves.”
