Coast Guard rescues man after sailboat capsizes

 ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) -- The Coast Guard says its response crews rescued a man after his sailboat capsized in Duvall Creek in Annapolis.

The Coast Guard says the man called 911 around 10:15 a.m. to report that his boat had capsized. Local police got in touch with Coast Guard Sector Baltimore. A response boat that was already on the water as part of a training exercise was diverted to the scene.

Crews pulled the man from the water and took him to an Anne Arundel County fire boat that took him to shore. He wasn't injured. The Coast Guard towed the sailboat to a marina.

Petty Officer 3rd Class Thomas Hatfield, the officer of the day at Coast Guard Station Annapolis, says the proximity of the crew allowed for a quick rescue.
