CARRABELLE, Fla. (AP) - Four boaters rescued off the Florida Panhandle are in Carrabelle in good condition.

The Coast Guard says the four were rescued from the Gulf of Mexico early Sunday morning. Their fishing boat began taking on water around 3:30 am about 50 miles south of Panama City.

Three boaters were found hanging onto the capsized boat. The fourth person was wearing a life jacket.

A Coast Guard cutter rescued all four and took them to Carrabelle, along the Gulf Coast southwest of Tallahassee.
