Pleasure boat listing and dead in the water off Alsea Bay Bridge – Rescue being launched – Boat is upstream from the bridge
Report of a 20 foot white pleasure boat that has lost power and is listing heavy on its left side about 300 yards UPstream from the Alsea Bay Bridge. Three or four people aboard. Unknown if they have lifejackets.
Low tide was at 12:35pm so the boat may have run aground on a sand bar.
Rescue boat from Central Coast Fire and jet skis from Seal Rock Ocean Water Rescue are with the boat.
The boat is okay. Rescuers are checking the jetties at the mouth of the river just to be sure.
Rescuers say they see nothing on the water.
