Five Children Rescued After Boat Capsizes

Five children were rescued Friday after their boat flipped over in the Contentnea Creek.

It happened around 1:30 p.m. outside of Snow Hill in Greene County. The children, who appeared to be in the their early teens, say they put the boat in a private ramp off of Beamon Old Creek Road. The boat capsized and they were able to call for help while holding onto the craft.

There's no immediate word why the boat capsized.
