Guam - At 11:30 this afternoon Guam Fire Department rescue units participating in training responded to an overturned boat just outside of the Hagatna Marina. According to Guam Police Department Chief Fred Bordallo three individuals were aboard the boat at the time it capsized.

"One was transported to Naval Hospital and is pretty much in serious condition and the other of course is right now being treated by the medic and the other one is okay," the chief told KUAM News.

The individual transported to Naval Hospital was administered CPR en route, while the second individual being treated by medics at the scene appeared to suffer minor scrapes and was on oxygen support prior to be transported. Bordallo says GPD's Marine Patrol Division is assisting in the investigation and at this time it has not been determined what caused the boat to capsize. An investigation is currently underway.
