SEATTLE — The Coast Guard says one of its boats rescued five adults and three children when a 45-foot pleasure boat started taking on water in Puget Sound.

The agency says all eight people were transferred Wednesday afternoon to the Seattle-based rescue boat. No one needed medical help.

The pleasure boat was being towed to Port Orchard.

The Coast Guard says it’s not known why the boat started taking on water near Blake Island.
