BRANFORD, CT (WFSB) -

The U.S. Coast Guard said two men had to be rescued from the waters of Branford Harbor.

Officials said they were called about an 18 foot vessel that had begun taking on water around 11:15 a.m.

The boat was making its way west toward Kelsey Island when it capsized due to the amount of water.

Branford fire crews arrived first, rescued the men and brought them to shore.

They were not hurt.

The Coast Guard said it was salvaging what was left of the boat.
