MUSKEGON, Mich. (WOOD) — Three people and a dog were rescued near the coast of Muskegon Saturday morning.

It happened around 10 a.m. just over 3.5 nautical miles near Muskegon, according to a U.S. Coast Guard release.

The release said the operator of a boat reported water was up to the passengers’ knees and that everyone was wearing a life jacket.

A crew was dispatched to the area and able to successfully rescue three people and a dog. There were no injuries in the incident.

Because the vessel was partially submerged, crews were unable to immediately recover the boat.
