Three people were left stranded after their boat capsized off the coast of Key Largo.
WSVN.com reports that the trio was sailing on a 24-foot vessel when it began to take on water. The group was able to call the Coast Guard for help and remained afloat thanks to life vests and clinging onto the side of the sinking boat.
