3 boys adrift in a skiff rescued Monday

Three children adrift in a small skiff are safe following a rescue off Saxman’s harbor Monday.

According to the U.S. Coast Guard, the parents of the three boys called in the report, and the Coast Guard sent out a 25-foot response boat to help. The crew quickly transferred the boys to the response boat, and towed the skiff back to harbor.

All three children were wearing lifejackets, which complies with state and federal regulations.
