SAN FRANCISCO —
Two people were rescued from a sinking sailboat Saturday afternoon near the Golden Gate Bridge, Coast Guard officials said.
The incident occurred shortly before 3:30 p.m. after a barge and tug boat collided with a sailboat one mile west of the Golden Gate Bridge.
The force of the collision threw two people into the chilly water and sunk the sailboat.
Coast Guard Ensign Corrine Gaines said the two people from the sailboat were taken to the Coast Guard station at Sausalito.
Gaines said there was no report of pollution from the mishap.
Paramedics checked out the two victims and determined they did not suffer any injuries.
There is no word yet on what caused the collision.
The crew from the tug and barge was ordered to return to port to be interviewed by Coast Guard investigators.
