NARRAGANSETT (AP) — The Coast Guard has res­cued two 15-year-old boys af­ter their boat lost power off Narragansett.

A com­mer­cial tow­ing com­pany con­tacted the Coast Guard on Sat­ur­day and re­ported that the teens were in a dis­abled 21-foot recre­ational boat stranded on a break wall in the Har­bor of Refuge near Point Judith.

When a 45-foot Coast Guard boat was un­able to get close enough to the break wall to res­cue the teens, a swim­mer was sent out. He swam to the rocks and brought each boy to the res­cue boat.

No in­juries were re­ported. The teens were re­united with their par­ents.
