Coast Guard helps disabled boat in Niagara River


BUFFALO, N.Y. The Coast Guard was called after a boat with four people aboard struck a reef and became disabled on the Niagara River in Buffalo.

No one was injured in the mishap Tuesday.

The Coast Guard says the 24-foot recreational vessel was disabled and drifting when its rescue boat arrived to tow it to shore.

The owner says the vessel became disabled after running aground on the Bird Island Reef.

It was the second time in 12 hours that a crew from the Coast Guard Station in Buffalo was pressed into service. Late Monday evening, a crew towed in a boat that had been taking on water in Lake Erie with two people aboard.

The names of the boaters were not released.
