So here is some local news:7 Rescued In Gulf Of Mexico

POSTED: 5:54 am CDT June 16, 2008

HOUSTON — Seven people, including two children, were rescued from the Gulf of Mexico after their boat started to sink on Sunday, KPRC Local 2 reported.

United States Coast Guard officials said they got a call that a 20-foot pleasure boat was taking on water about 23 miles southeast of Galveston shortly after 8 a.m.

The seven were initially in the water, but had made it to a high island rig by the time rescuers arrived.

Officials said the seven were in good condition and wearing life jackets. The boat was towed back to Galveston.

The Coast Guard reminds boaters to:

wear life jackets
carry a VHF radio
be aware of weather, water conditions
never boat or paddle alone
file a float plan
be aware of other vessels in the area
be cautious
