From the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office

Shortly before 8:30am this morning, deputies with the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office Marine Division were dispatched after a sailboat capsized in Lake Pontchartrain.

As STPSO Marine deputies arrived on scene, they were notified that the two occupants of the boat were able to be pulled to safety by Causeway Police due to their proximity to the Causeway Bridge.

The sailboat remains in the water at this time. STPSO Marine Division units are working with the Coast Guard and the boat’s owner to salvage the boat.
