Four people were being treated at a hospital after being rescued from a capsized boat off the San Francisco coastline over the weekend, police said.

The San Francisco Police Department's marine unit was called on April 14 to respond to the waters off Ocean Beach near Great Highway and Fulton Street at about 9:52 a.m.

The four boaters were in the water and the 25-to-30-foot vessel capsized about five miles from the Golden Gate Bridge while heading out to sea, police said.

A spokesman for the San Francisco Bar Pilots said the pilot vessel California first arrived at the scene of the capsized boat at about 9:43 a.m. to assess the situation as the SFPD marine unit and the U.S. Coast Guard were en route. Crew members of the California began the rescue operations and recovered two of the boaters; the SFPD rescue boat arrived shortly after to help recover the other boaters, the SFBP spokesman said. 

All four boaters were taken to a hospital for injuries that were not life-threatening, police said.

The vessel was still adrift in the water a day later, according to police, and would be recovered later.
