GUNTERSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Crews responded to a boat that capsized on Lake Guntersville Sunday afternoon near the Highway 69 causeway.

Two were onboard at the time but were not hurt.

They started at Honeycomb to fish but decided to turn back several miles away due to high winds.

During the process of turning around the boat capsized, but the two fishermen were able to swim to safety.
