DALLAS (AP) - Authorities say a man and his two children have been rescued from a Dallas-area lake after their boat sank and they were found clinging to upper branches of a partly submerged tree.

Dallas Fire-Rescue officials say emergency personnel in a boat responded around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday at Lake Ray Hubbard. A Dallas police rescue boat was also used to help pluck the trio from the tree on a sunny day with temperatures in the 90s.

Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans says the man and his children were wearing life vests. Evans says the youths are believed to be ages 8 and 13.

Further details weren’t immediately available on the boat or what caused the vessel to sink.
