Two people have been rescued by the U.S. Coast Guard in Cape May County after their sailboat capsized in the Delaware Bay Friday afternoon.

The incident was reported around 230 this afternoon in the bay off Avalon Road.

Officials say a sailboat capsized in the water. One person was able to get to shore and get help.

But a 50-year-old man and a 21-year-old woman were missing.

Coast guard boats and a helicopter searched the area for about two hours until both were found safely.

Both are reported to be doing fine.
