Coast Guard rescues 3 after watercraft accident in Atlantic City

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (WPVI) -- The U.S. Coast Guard rescued three people after a watercraft accident in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

It happened around 3:30 p.m. Sunday in the Back Bay area.

A Good Samaritan who spotted the crash quickly called 911, officials say.

The responding crew airlifted a man and two children after their Jet Ski struck a navigational aid, officials say.

Officials say the man suffered leg lacerations, and the children were in shock.

The rescue comes after a boat ran aground in Brielle, and a father and son were killed during a watercraft accident in Somers Point.
