Two rescued from sinking boat

Two boaters were hospitalized after being rescued Sunday from a sinking 27-foot powerboat in Britain’s Humber River.

"As crews arrived on scene they found the Sea Eagle to have a significant hole in her hull caused by a collision with the buoy. A number of boats also went to assist the sinking cruiser,” a spokesman for the British coast guard told The Guardian newspaper.
