2 men escape sinking boat in Lake Winnipesaukee

Two boaters safely escaped their sinking craft near Wallace Island in Lake Winnipesaukee Friday.

Moultonborough and Meredith fire departments and New Hampshire Marine Patrol answered the distress call that came in about 12:56 p.m. They found the 15- to 20-foot motor boat partially submerged and the two men in their 20s standing in about 4-feet of water, Moultonborough Fire Chief David Bengtson said.

Neither man was hurt.

It wasn't immediately clear why the craft took on water.

A Jet Ski towed the boat away.
