Seattle Police Department harbor officers responded to a report of an overturned, 14-foot fishing boat around 7 p.m. in the waters at South Lake Union. When officers arrived, they spotted three people in the water. Officers and two fishing boats helped locate everyone and the three were rescued.

No injuries were reported, and the overturned boat was turned right-side up. It is unknown what caused the boat to flip.
