Coast Guard and local harbormaster crews rescued 15 people Sunday afternoon from a boat that sank off the coast of Cohasset.



According to a Patriot Ledger report, four adults and 11 children were on a 30-foot pleasure boat when it began to sink near Minot’s Ledge around 1:40 p.m.


Crews were brought in from Point Allerton in Hull and the Scituate Coast Guard station, along with harbormasters from Cohasset and Scituate, the report said.


No injuries were reported, and a commercial salvage company was contacted to refloat and tow the vessel.

There was no word on what caused the boat to take on water.
