Rescue boat capsizes at triathlon

All were safe.

During the New England Season Opener triathlon this past weekend in Ashland, Massachusetts, a rescue boat tipped over while attempting to help four swimmers experiencing difficulty in the cold and windy conditions.

All (including the two firefighters who went into the water from the initial rescue boat) were rescued by another boat nearby, and aside from being a bit chilly everyone was fine.
