Two men were rescued on Lake Superior on Monday after their sailboat capsized just after 2 p.m.
According to the U.S. Coast Guard, two men were in the 17-foot sailboat near Madeline Island, just off the northern coast of Wisconsin, when high winds caused the boat to capsize. The Coast Guard unit stationed at Bayfield, Wisconsin was able to rescue the men using a 45-foot response boat. The man and their sailboat were taken back to the Madeline Island marina.
"Both men did the right thing by wearing their life jackets," said Petty Officer 3rd Class Daniel Harris of Station Bayfield. "The men were also wearing wetsuits, which would have greatly helped their chances of survival if we had not found them right away."
There were no injures reported in the incident and the two men are not being identified.
