CAPE CHARLES, Va. — Four people are safe after the boat they were on capsized Wednesday afternoon near the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel.

The incident happened near the bridge-tunnel’s third island, closer to the Eastern Shore side.

A spokesperson with the U.S. Coast Guard said good Samaritans were able to pick up all the passengers after their 25-foot Bayliner overturned.
