They were rescued by the Hancock County Sheriff’s Department’s Marine Patrol unit shortly before 3 p.m.
“As we came out of the mouth on the Jourdan River at Bay St. Louis, we were flagged down by a gentleman and his grandson. He had launched a boat at the Cedar Point boat launch. He got a little past the mouth of the Jourdan River when his boat started taking on water. He made the decision to get out of the boat. As they were getting out, the boat capsized. His grandson was wearing a life jacket,” said Brandon Normand, Hancock County Marine Patrol.
