Posted: Updated:

The Department of Marine Resources (DMR) and the Biloxi Fire Department confirm a boat capsized around 6 Saturday evening.

According to DMR, the 14 foot Hobie sailboat was about 10 miles south of the coliseum when it overturned.

DMR officials say two people onboard were wearing life jackets and were not injured.

The Biloxi Fire Department sent a boat out to respond to the incident, however, officials say DMR patrols were closer to the boat. DMR was able to help the two put the boat upright.
