3 Boaters Swim To Pier After Vessel Overturns In Port Of LA

SAN PEDRO (CBS) — Three boaters, whose vessel overturned in the Port of Los Angeles Sunday, were able to swim to a commercial pier.

Firefighters got word of a boat on the rocks just east of Reservation Point near the Pier 400 commercial shipping installation about 1:20 p.m., and responding authorities found three men on Pier 400 in good condition.

Their roughly 19-foot boat was overturned and port police were working to secure it so it does not become a hazard to navigation.
