San Francisco Fire Department Rescues Disabled Pleasure Boat Drifting Toward Bay Bridge Amid Fuel Shortage

Marine units of the San Francisco Fire Department (SFFD) came to the rescue on Thursday, towing a disabled pleasure boat and its crew back to dock.

The incident, which unfolded at 11:13 a.m., involved a vessel that had run into trouble on the Bay.

Officials reported that the boat had run out of fuel and lacked a functioning radio, leaving it unable to anchor.

Measuring 15 feet in length, the craft was adrift towards the Bay Bridge and shipping lanes when it lost propulsion.

San Francisco fire units coordinated closely with the boat’s captain to ensure a safe return to shore.

SFFD’s Fire Rescue Boat 1 provided a courtesy tow to bring the vessel back to safety, according to officials.

Safety Confirmation and Relief

Fortunately, no injuries were reported among those aboard the drifting boat.

In a reassuring statement, SFFD mentioned on social media, “All parties are safe and will get to enjoy the holiday.”
