BOSTON (AP) – The U.S. Coast Guard has rescued two people after their kayaks capsized during a thunderstorm in Concord Point, N.H.

The Coast Guard says a good Samaritan notified the South Portland, Maine, station that the men were in the water and needed help at about 3 p.m. Wednesday.

Both men were wearing life jackets.

A 25-foot response boat launched from Station Portsmouth Harbor in New Castle, N.H., recovered the two men and their kayaks and took them to Pirates Cove in Rye, N.H.

There were thunderstorm warnings in effect for the area at the time of the accident.
