Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies rescued three stranded people Tuesday night after their fishing boat capsized in the open water near Pompano Beach.

Shortly after 9 p.m. April 28, BSO’s Marine and Aviation units along with patrol deputies responded to a call where three people were in distress on top of their overturned, capsizing boat off the Pompano Beach shore.

As the deputies quickly responded to the area, they observed the victims frantically flashing a light toward the shore at 1300 N. Ocean Drive.

The coordinated efforts between BSO units allowed Marine Patrol to safely navigate through the rough waters and identify exactly where the stranded boaters were located.

Deputies believe the boat capsized due to the high winds and 4 to 5 foot sea conditions. All three men were wearing life jackets and did not report any injuries.

BSO encourages boaters to always ensure all proper safety equipment is on board before heading out onto the water and be mindful of weather conditions and hazards.
