The Coast Guard was told that two boaters stayed with the overturned boat.

Yesterday, the United States Coast Guard was searching for two missing boaters after their vessel capsized in a storm off the southeastern coast of Florida on Friday.

According to CNN, a survivor told rescuers that after the 23-foot Pro-Line they were on capsized, he swam for help while the other two stayed with the boat with lifejackets on. The survivor was rescued on Sunday by a boat near Biscayne Bay and was receiving medical care at Jackson Memorial Hospital.

The Coast Guard said it was notified on Sunday afternoon by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission that a 23-foot blue Pro-Line boat carrying three people was overdue to return. The boat departed from the Caribbean Club in Key Largo last Thursday, according to officials and the Coast Guard tweeted on Monday that the capsized vessel was found in Haulover Inlet.
