Wareham: Two Men Rescued from Capsized Boat

The Coast Guard, along with other agencies, responded to a call of an overturned boat Saturday morning in Buzzard’s Bay, off the coast of Wareham.

Watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector Southeastern New England’s command center received notification at approximately 10 a.m. that two people were aboard the 14-foot recreational boat. 

A Coast Guard boat and helicopter search ended when the boat crew located another mariner who confirmed he had recovered the two people and brought them safely to shore.

No injuries were reported. 

The identities of the two people have not been released, and it’s unclear what cause the boat to capsize.
