LAKEWOOD -- The Coast Guard confirmed to Channel 3 that it rescued two people in Lake Erie when their 16-foot sailboat capsized Friday afternoon about 300 yards offshore around 3 p.m.

Emergency crews checked out the boaters at Edgewater Marina.

The boat remains in the water with only a small part of the hull showing. No pollution has been reported.

The two people were sharing a lifejacket before being rescued. When the vessel capsized they were only able to grab one.
