A close call for some boaters Friday morning on the Muskingum River.
Before noon, the Marietta Fire Department responded to a stranded boat that was taking on water.
Fire Chief C.W. Durham says there were three people in the boat and everyone was okay.
They launched off the Indian Acres boat ramp for the first time this year and had some trouble with the engine.
The Marietta Fire boat was able to tow them to shore.
