Children swept from boats in squall
by UPI

DUBLIN, Ireland -- The Irish Coast Guard said everyone was rescued after a sudden storm capsized 91 small sailing boats during a junior regatta Thursday.

The Irish Times reported 110 children, ages 10 to 15, were participating in the regatta in Dun Laoghaire harbor in County Dublin, operated by four yacht clubs.

A sudden change in the weather caused the small sailing yachts to topple.

Helicopters, ambulances and fire department water rescue teams managed to save everyone and a number of the youths were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment, the Times reported.
