The U.S. Coast Guard and some good Samaritans helped rescue six people from a sinking boat northeast of Lynnhaven Inlet on Sunday.

The 28-foot boat Fishbones was taking on water about 30 miles east of Elizabeth City, N.C., at about 8:30 a.m., a Coast Guard news release said. The crew of the Canyon Express relayed a distress message to the Coast Guard.
