Four people were rescued Sunday from a disabled boat adrift in waters off Montaña de Oro.
At 1:21 p.m., the U.S. Coast Guard station in Morro Bay sent responders to a 24-foot craft drifting dangerously close to the surf near Spooner’s Cove.
“It’s extremely dangerous, because any wave action can capsize it,” said Morro Bay Coast Guard Chief Cory Wadley.
The responders, with the assistance of Cal Fire, the Morro Bay Harbor Patrol and State Parks, were able to rescue the four occupants of the boat, who were not identified.
As of 2 p.m., everyone was safely on shore, and responders were working to tow the vessel to safer waters and into Morro Bay Harbor.
Waves were reported to be 3 feet at the time of the incident.
