2 escape injury when speed boat capsizes off Atlantic City coast

    Coast Guard officials say no one was injured when a speed boat capsized in the ocean off Atlantic City.

     

     

    The Press of Atlantic City reports the two people in the boat were making a test run when the accident occurred Saturday afternoon. They were quickly picked up by other boaters who happened to be in the area and brought them back to shore.

    The Coast Guard sent out a 25-foot boat to help in the rescue, but officials say it eventually was not needed.

    Authorities say the boat’s owners would make salvage plans for the boat.
