BODEGA BAY, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say four people died and a fifth was pulled to safety after their boat capsized off the Northern California coast.

Coast Guard spokesman Barry Bena said that officials were notified around 10 a.m. Saturday about an overturned boat off Seal Rock near Bodega Bay, about 70 miles up the coast from San Francisco.

Bena says a California Highway Patrol helicopter recovered the survivor from the rocks.

He says a Coast Guard boat recovered four bodies from the water.

Bena says he has no information about what caused the boat to capsize.
