The U.S. Coast Guard says four people were pulled from the water after a boating accident in Sussex County.

Officials say they got the call Sunday afternoon for an overturned vessel in the Indian River Bay with four people thrown into the water. WBOC-TV reports the Coast Guard was able to rescue all four people and no one was injured.

The cause of this accident is under investigation, but Coast Guard officials say alcohol was not a factor.
