Yacht crashes into Balboa Pier, passengers rescued from water


Thirteen people were onboard the boat when it crashed at about 8:15 p.m.

Some of the passengers had to be rescued from 5- to 6-foot surf by firefighters and lifeguards.

No injuries were reported.

The boat is a 55-foot Sea Ray yacht.

The pier was scheduled to be closed Monday for city engineers to assess the damage to the structure.

The cause of the incident was under investigation; visibility and fog may be factors.

It was earlier reported that the Newport Pier was struck.
