Two brothers were hospitalized early Monday morning after they were rescued from their boat on King’s Creek right below I-64.

The two reportedly lost power, but managed to get their boat beneath the bridge and call for help.

One of the boaters had managed to get out of the boat and was attempting to get either onto the bridge or show, officials say.

The two were taken to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

An adult  nephew of one of the brothers who had gone out on a jet ski to look for them was also found safe.
