11 rescued from sinking boat

A 40-foot yacht is being salvaged from the bottom of the Niagara River near Gilmore Road after 11 people were rescued from the sinking boat Sunday night.

Lt. Carolyn Moberley of the U.S. Coast Guard said the American registered boat struck some rocks and began to take on water. Rescuers from the Coast Guard and Buffalo Police arrived just before the boat sunk. Nobody was hurt.

The accident is being investigated by Canadian authorities.
