LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- Three adults and a child are recovering after being rescued at sea by the Coast Guard this weekend.

The four were seen clinging to the hull of their capsized boat about 24 miles southwest of Matanzas Pass in the Fort Myers Beach area on Sunday. Luckily no one was hurt.

The Coast Guard says a good Samaritan in the area overheard a faint distress call and relayed the message to the Coast Guard.

It's unclear what caused the boat to capsize.
