FD: Small boat capsizes in Tempe Town Lake

TEMPE, AZ - A small sail boat capsized while on Tempe Town Lake Tuesday night.

Tempe Fire Department spokesman Jim Schmidt said the mast got caught in cable and the boaters could not turn the boat back over.

Sailing instructor Phillip Freedman said the boaters were part a high school sailing class. There were three students and an instructor on board when the boat capsized.

Air15 video showed crews working to put the mast down and get the boat back upright.

Schmidt said no one was injured during the incident.
