Three fisherman rescued from Bay

By Washington Post editors

Three men were rescued early Thursday after their boat flipped while they were fishing in the Chesapeake Bay, WTOP reports.

The men were in the warm water discharge coming from the Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant in Calvert County when the boat turned over. The water was about 38 degrees.

Fishing guide Capt. Dennis Fleming, who was nearby in his boat, called the Coast Guard. He said the men were able to hold on to the overturned boat until he could reach them and pull them aboard his boat.

Fleming estimated they were in the water for five to 10 minutes. All were wearing life jackets.

The men were taken to Calvert Memorial Hospital.
