Three boaters had to be rescued Saturday morning after their boat began to sink.
It happened off Cape Lookout in Carteret County. Coast Guard officials say three people were on a 23 foot boat when they decided to ground it on Shark Island. That's when they say the boat began to take on water.
The coast guard was called. All three boaters were able to get off the boat safely. A tow boat arrived soon after and brought the boat to shore.
