10 rescued from sea off Golfito

A boat overturned and dumped six adults and four children into the sea off Golfito around noon Monday. One was just 5 months old.

The  Servicio Nacional de Guardacostas said that crews of private boats participated in rescues and that a coast guard boat brought the 10 persons to land. One was hospitalized unconscious, the coast guard said.

None of the rescued individuals was wearing a life jacket, said the coast guard. A report identified the craft as the Cristopher.

All of those rescued live in the area, said the coast guard.
