2 men rescued from sinking boat in Florida waterway amid harsh weather: police

Two men were rescued from their sinking boat in a Florida waterway by local police amid tropical storm-like conditions.

The Martin County Sheriff’s Office posted on social media about the rescue operation, saying that high winds and choppy waves caused a 15-foot skiff to begin to sink on the Intercoastal Waterway in Martin County, Florida.

Two men were on board the boat when it began to sink.
