CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS — Corpus Christi firefighters and rescue crews are trying to rescue several people in the Corpus Christi Bay.

The incident happened just after 3 p.m. after a sailboat appears to have collided with a rock barrier jetty in front on One Shoreline Plaza.

Rescue crews and lifeboats arrived at the scene around 3:20 p.m.

Several people were taken to the Lawrence St T-Head so medics could check if any suffered any injuries.
