      U.S. Coast Guard crews were working Saturday morning to retrieve a 

    boat that capsized near the San Mateo Bridge Friday afternoon, coast guard 
    officials said.
      The 14-foot boat remained in the water following a Friday 
    afternoon water rescue where emergency personnel pulled out a 16-year-old 
    girl and a 51-year-old man about a mile and a half south of the bridge around 
    4 p.m.
      After the boat capsized, Alameda County fire crews went in to 
    rescue the pair, who were about 200 feet from the vessel.
      They were brought safely to Redwood City for medical care, fire 
    officials said.
      This morning the overturned boat was spotted north of the bridge, 
    but had moved underneath the span around 11 a.m.
      Crews will try to remove the boat by the end of the day, according 
    to the coast guard.
