SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A father and his two children have been rescued after their boat capsized in San Francisco Bay.

Coast Guard spokesman Levi Read said a Coast Guard crew rescued the three after their 19-foot aluminum boat tipped over near Alameda.

Read said the three family members were in the water for at least 20 minutes before rescuers arrived. It’s not known if they were wearing life vests.

After being brought ashore, the father and two children were taken to a hospital for evaluation.

The Coast Guard did not release additional details.
