A boat slammed into rocks off Alcatraz Island in San Francisco Bay, stranding two people and three dogs, California firefighters reported.
The San Francisco Fire Department and a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter rescued the people and dogs from the vessel after the 9:55 a.m. mishap Saturday, Nov. 26, fire officials said on Twitter.
The crash left the boat “hard up on the rocks” but not sinking, firefighters reported.
About an hour later, firefighters said the man and woman aboard were safe, along with the dogs, and they were working with the owner on plans to recover the boat.
No one was injured in the accident.
Alcatraz Island, once home to a federal prison, is now a tourist attraction managed by the National Park Service.
