BELLINGHAM, Wash. – The U.S. Coast Guard says a teen and a man in his early 20’s were rescued after their canoe overturned near Lummi Island.

The two were in Portage Channel on Saturday morning.

A witness on shore called authorities just before 11 a.m. to say he could see that the men were in the water.

Neither was wearing a life jacket.

A crew in a 25-foot boat responded from the Coast Guard station in Bellingham and found the men with the help of a U.S. Customs and Border Protection helicopter.

The men were treated for mild hypothermia.
