3 rescued from water in Portsmouth

By Jennifer Petracca


The Coast Guard rescued three boaters from the water in Portsmouth Sunday morning.

Around 3 a.m., the Coast Guard received distress calls from a sinking vessel in Weaver Cove.

Upon arriving, rescue crews pulled the three occupants from the water near their powerboat, which was partially underwater.

 The boaters were brought to EMTs on shore where they were treated for minor injuries.

There is no word yet on what caused the boat to sink.
