GUNTERSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Two people were rescued Wednesday afternoon after their boat capsized on Lake Guntersville.

Rescue crews were called to Seibold Creek around 1 p.m. after a boat overturned.

The men in the boat made it safely to the island where their tent was pitched.

The hunters changed into drier clothes and called for help.

The water was too shallow for the fire department's boat to go in and help the victims. A bass boat was brought in and took the victims to be checked for hypothermia. They are expected to be ok.
