BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The Coast Guard says three people have been rescued from a catamaran that capsized on Lake Champlain in Vermont.

The 14-foot boat overturned in Appletree Bay about a mile northwest from shore on Wednesday. The Coast Guard says it found three people sitting on the boat’s hull around 2:45 p.m. One person reported suffering a minor cut.

The occupants say heavy winds caused their craft to capsize.

They were evaluated by medical personnel and later released.
