Two people were rescued from a sinking boat by Harbor Patrol around 9 p.m. Tuesday, police said.

Lt. Mark Stichter, public information officer with the Orange County Sheriff’s Department, said deputies received a call around 9 p.m. about a sinking vessel about seven miles off the coast around San Mateo Point.

“The vessel had two people aboard and advised the Coast Guard they were taking on water and experiencing unknown engine trouble,” Stichter said.

He said when deputies arrived, both subjects were standing on top of the boat as it was sinking.

“The boat sunk shortly after,” Stichter said.

He added neither person was injured and both were brought back to Dana Point Harbor.
