LOS ANGELES (AP) - The U.S. Coast Guard has rescued a group of teenage Sea Scouts after their boat lost power in the Channel Islands.

Authorities say a crewmember on a 36-foot power boat reported Tuesday night that the vessel had lost power and steering near Santa Rosa Island.

Coast Guard helicopters and a patrol boat were sent out and the boat was towed back to the Channel Islands Harbor.

Two adults and eight Sea Scouts ranging from 14 to 18 years old were aboard.
