CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

A defective boat may have caused a boat to capsize in Vermilion Tuesday at 6:30 p.m., police said. 

The department received the call of a capsized boat with two people in the water. A police boat responded and the boat brought in. The two people were safe and helped by a passing vessel. 

It appears a rotten fiberglass body caused the transom to split away from the boat with the engine, police said.
