(CNN)Two adults and four children were rescued Friday by the US Coast Guard off the Georgia coast after their boat stuck an object and started sinking.

The 17-foot boat was near the entrance to the St. Marys River on the Florida-Georgia border when it hit something and started taking on water, the Nassau County, Florida, Sheriff's Office said in a Facebook post.

The US Coast Guard cutter Sea Dragon was returning from offshore and launched a small boat crew to rescue the six people from the boat, the Coast Guard said in a statement.

A marine unit from the sheriff's office used a pump to remove the water from the boat before towing it to the Amelia Island boat ramp in Florida.
