A Good Samaritan responding to a U.S. Coast Guard alert got a woman and three children out of waters near Sombero Key Saturday after their catamaran capsized.
The Coast Guard said Key West watchstanders got a report of a 20-foot capsized boat with four people aboard near Sombrero Key and sent out an Urgent Marine Safety Information Broadcast. That drew a Good Samaritan, who pulled the foursome — Marvelynn Bass, 51; Josh Owens, 14; Amber Owens, 12; and Martin Bowens, 2 — out of the water. All wore their life jackets.
A Coast Guard Special Purpose Craft from Marathon arrived to take the four to the Key West station. None had injuries, the Coast Guard said.
