Rescue: about 15 miles southeast of Corpus
Corpus Christi — The Associated Press is reportign; the Coast Guard has rescued four adults and a 2-year-old child from a disabled boat off the South Texas coast.
The Coast Guard says authorities were called around 12:40 p.m. Sunday after a man reported his friends were adrift because of engine problems near Flour Bluff Landing, about 15 miles southeast of Corpus Christi.
Two adults and the child were taken onto a rescue boat, while the other two adults chose to stay on the disabled vessel as it was towed to a marina.
A statement from the Guard says the 16-foot flat bottom boat didn't have flares, a radio or a proper sized lifejacket for the child.
