Just got this from the S.F. Chronicle. 5 adults and 2 children were rescued after the 25 foot boat they were in got caught in heavy surf and rolled over this afternoon. No one was seriously injured in the 2 1/2 hour ordeal, which involved the Coast Guard and Sonoma County Sheriffs Dept. The boat was towed to Lawson's Landing, so the children, trapped inside the cabin, could be rescued. According to the story, the surf was pretty rough, the boat ran up against a sand bar, and the boat rolled over.

we saw the rescue take place. all adults got off the boat, some swam to shore and the others were rescued by helicopter in the surf...... and they left 2 children in the overturned boat with no life jackets on. one boy one girl both were under 7 yrs old. they stayed in the air pocket at the bow while the boat got towed in and dragged to shore where the fire dept cut a hole to get the kids out

Was that the right thing to do? leave the kids in the hull? I don't know if I could swim away from my son.

I couldn't swim away from my kids. I hope they teach this guy a lesson with a heavy fine. If someone got in a car accident and didn't have seatbelts on their kids it would be child endangerment. No difference here. Glad it worked out but it was sheer stupidity that got them into this mess.

The story was just on KCRA a little while ago. The two children suffered from hypothermia and the family was from Elk Grove.
