Seven people who struck the Niagara River’s Bird Island Reef in a boat were rescued by the Coast Guard Tuesday evening, officials said.

Their boat had been taking on water very quickly, authorities reported. They were taken ashore by the Coast Guard, and the boat was pumped out and separately towed to the Erie Basin Marina, the Coast Guard said.

There were no injuries, officials said.
