Two men were rescued from a cave near Sunset Cliffs on Friday morning after their fishing boat became trapped inside.
The men were asleep inside a 26-foot-catamaran, which was on auto-pilot mode, as they returned from a fishing trip near Coronado Island when they woke up around midnight and realized the surf was pushing their boat into a cave, NBC7 reported.
They were able to make a distress call, but it took crews around an hour to find the cave, which was near the Point Loma Wastewater Treatment Plant, the news station reported.
The U.S. Coast Guard responded, but found their vessel was to large to enter the cave and the two men were eventually rescued by San Diego lifeguards.
No injuries were reported.
