Five people from Brampton have been rescued from a sinking boat on Lake Erie.
They went out for a Sunday afternoon of fishing when their boat started taking on water off the Port Colborne shore.
The Coast Guard and Port Colborne Marine Auxiliary both dispatched rescue vessels to the scene and got the five off the 17 foot boat.
The boat was towed to a nearby marina, but so far officials don’t know why the boat started taking on water.
