OLCOTT — Six boaters were rescued from a sinking boat on Lake Ontario Thursday night.

At 10 p.m., minutes after receiving a 911 call from a passenger stating his boat was sinking, Niagara County sheriff’s deputies located a distressed boat about 150 feet off shore. A Niagara County Sheriff’s Marine Unit rescued all six passengers of the 20-foot 1987 Sport Craft. The boat was completely submerged by water and capsized when the final occupant was assisted.

The six boaters, who were wearing life preservers, were uninjured.
