An unidentified 38-foot fishing boat capsized at the mouth of Tillamook Bay at 4:40 p.m. Saturday afternoon. All four people on board went into the water.
Fortunately, the U.S. Coast Guard was observing the area from a nearby watchtower when the incident occurred. Rescue crews were dispatched immediately, and the four mariners were removed from the water by 6:00 p.m.
Two of the mariners were unresponsive at the time of the rescue. All four were taken to the hospital.
