CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) - Two adults and two children were rescued from the Atlantic Ocean off the Florida coast.

The U.S. Coast Guard says the four boaters were rescued Sunday about 25 miles east of Port Canaveral, Florida.

All four were wearing life jackets, and there were no reported injuries.

A Coast Guard airplane crew first spotted their abandoned boat and a short time later located the four boaters.

The Coast Guard said in a statement that the cause of the accident is under investigation.
