LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Four fishermen have been rescued after their boat capsized, tossing the men into the frigid Pacific Ocean waters off the Southern California coast.

KNBC (https://bit.ly/1QJqoKs ) reports the men were four miles off the coast of Long Beach early Wednesday when their 18-foot power boat overturned.

The men clung to the side of their boat for more than an hour as they waited for someone to find them. They say they tried to stay warm and positive.

Someone on a tanker boat eventually noticed them and called for help.

Aerial footage of the rescue shows a lifeguard straddling the bottom of the capsized boat. Long Beach Fire Department marine safety captain Scott Dixon called the men’s ordeal and rescue “a scary moment.”
