CORAL GABLES, FLA. (WSVN) - A vessel capsized on local waters, tossing two boaters into the water.

Miami-Dade Police was among the departments that responded to the incident two miles east of Matheson Hammock Park & Marina, in Coral Gables, Friday afternoon.

Aviation units captured the scene after a man and woman fell out of the boat and remained in the water momentarily.

Shortly after the boat overturned, good Samaritans helped them out by inflating a flotation device for the people to climb onto a tug boat.

The man and woman who fell overboard remained in the police vessel as officials investigated; they seemed to be OK.
