Two boaters were rescued Monday afternoon in waters off Key West.
The Coast Guard received a report from two men aboard the Blue Reaction that their vessel was taking on water. Search units were immediately dispatched to the area near Marquesas. The boat crew arrived to find the two men in the water, but afloat thanks to their lifejackets.
"Wearing your life jacket and equipping your vessel with a VHF radio and Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon greatly improves your chances for survival during emergencies on the water," said Lt. Ricky Brooks, command duty officer at Coast Guard Sector Key West.
There were no reports of injuries.
Its unclear why the boat capsized. Commercial salvage was contacted to recover the overturned vessel.
