HOUSTON — The Coast Guard rescued three people from the water after their vessel started sinking in the Sabine Channel near Sabine Pass, Texas, Saturday.

While transiting the Sabine Channel around 2:10 p.m., a Coast Guard 29-foot Response BoatSmall crew from Station Sabine Pass discovered a 18-foot vessel taking on water with three people aboard. 

The Coast Guard crew began escorting the swamped vessel to a Sabine Pass boat ramp, but the vessel took on excessive water and capsized, causing all three boaters to enter the water. None were wearing life jackets. The RBS crew pulled all three people from the water and brought them safely ashore. 

No injuries were reported. The vessel's owner will reportedly arrange for salvage of the adrift vessel.

“This case reminds boaters that you shouldn't hesitate to call for assistance when something goes amiss,” said Coast Guard Petty Officer 2nd Class Tim Washington, coxswain for the case. "When it comes to mishaps and emergencies on the water, events unfold too quickly to wait. When in doubt, call 911 or the Coast Guard so we can get to you and render timely assistance."
