Coast Guard rescues 3 men when crab boat capsizes near Cliff House 

Three men were rescued off the coast of San Francisco this morning after their crab boat capsized, a Coast Guard spokeswoman said.

The Coast Guard received a mayday call over the radio at around 12:40 a.m., Petty Officer Laura Alcon said.

A crab boat capsized near the Cliff House and three people fell into the water before climbing into a life raft, Alcon said.

Coast Guard crews rescued the stranded boaters and no serious injuries were reported.

There were about 270 crab pots on the deck and when the pots shifted the vessel’s stability was disrupted, Alcon said.
