MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – Alabama Department of Public Safety officials say three people whose boat capsized on the Tallapoosa River have been rescued.

Sgt. Steve Jarrett said in an emailed statement that state troopers rescued the boaters early Wednesday morning near Martin Dam. Jarrett says the boaters were fishing when their 16-foot vessel capsized and left them stranded on Middle Pond Island.

Jarrett says the boaters weren’t injured and additional information was not immediately available.
