The Coast Guard has rescued two boaters who were stranded off Folly Beach when their sailboat overturned.

The two were rescued by a Coast Guard boat shortly after 10 p.m. Wednesday after a helicopter pinpointed their location.

The Coast Guard says that 23-year-old Zachary Nelson of Hollywood, (S.C.), and 22-year-old Kayla Henry of Clarksville, Tenn., were found clinging to the Hobie Cat sailboat.

A third person on the boat swam to shore and contacted authorities.

The accident happened about a mile east of the Morris Island Lighthouse.
