PORTSMOUTH, Va. (AP) - A boat crew from Coast Guard Station Milford Haven rescued four people after their boat started to sink.

News outlets report the Coast Guard said in a news release that a 21-foot boat with three adults and one child was taking on water when crews helped trailer the boat. A 29-foot boat crew assisted the vessel, and took it to the Gloucester Point Marina.

Cmdr. Peggy M. Britton, chief of response at Sector Hampton Roads, says mariners can schedule a vessel check or take a free boating safety course to prepare for the boating season.
