Three boaters were rescued Monday evening from Middle River by Natural Resources Police after their small boat capsized in choppy, wind-swept water, the agency reported.
An officer found Dwayne W. Abbott, 28, of Essex
and Jonathan M. Miller, 11, and William H. Miller, 34, both of Middle River in the 58-degree water near Wilson Point with help from the Baltimore County aviation unit. The boaters were transferred to a Baltimore County Fire Department boat and then taken to Franklin Square Hospital for evaluation, the police report said.
All of the boaters were wearing life jackets at the time of the accident, but spring water temperatures are still dangerous and can cause hypothermia
