CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (KTRK) -- Three people trapped on a boat were rescued before it sank in a Corpus Christi marina, according to the Texas A&M Task Force 1 (TF1).


TF1's water rescue squad arrived as many of the other boats in the marina were breaking apart and sinking.


It happened between Saturday evening and Sunday morning after Hurricane Hanna, a category 1 storm, made its first landfall at Padre Island, just south of Corpus Christi.


The rescuers helped two 80-year-olds and the 40-year-old owner of the sailboat onto inflatable rescue boats to bring them back to shore.


Video of the incident shows the rescuers helping the three people amidst heavy rain and high winds.
