Two Rescued from Delaware After Boat Sinking

Two people were pulled from the murky waters of the Delaware River Monday night after their boat sank, according to the Coast Guard.

The 15-foot pleasure boat was floating near the Tacony-Palmyra Bridge around 9 p.m. when it began to take on water. Both occupants eventually fell into the river when the boat became completely submerged, the Coast Guard said.

An unidentified person was rescued by a Good Samaritan in another boat just before 10 p.m. and rushed to Aria Health's Frankford Hospital. That person's injuries appear to be minor, according to sources.

The second person -- a 62-year old man -- was pulled from the river by the Coast Guard around 10:20 p.m. He was taken to Cooper University Hospital in Camden, N.J. His condition is unknown.
