BERKELEY (KRON/AP)– The U.S. Coast Guard says dozens of people were rescued from a water taxi that got stuck about a mile off California’s Berkeley Marina.
Petty Officer Cory Mendenhall said the agency received a call around 3 p.m. Saturday that a ferry carrying more than 40 people had run aground.
He said all passengers were safely on land and there were no reported injuries.
Osprey Ferry stuck in the #Berkeley marina required rescue for passengers about 1 hr ago. Local boaters claim “Best recollection of quote, by one of the Osprey crew: ‘Why did they put a channel marker right in the middle of all these rocks?’” @kron4news pic.twitter.com/ZvrFzJA5tt
