Three fishermen were rescued from a sinking boat Friday in the waters off Haulover Park, officials said.

A good Samaritan saw the 30-foot white boat sinking near Newport Pier north of Haulover Beach and made the call just before 3 p.m., Coast Guard officials said.

That person took all three men — who were wearing life jackets — on board. Miami-Dade Fire Rescue and Coast Guard responded and towed away the overturned vessel.

The men told NBC 6 they were out fishing when the boat started sinking. No one was injured.
