POMPANO BEACH, FL (AP) - Four divers in a boat that sank offshore from Pompano Beach are safe.

Authorities say the four rescued early Wednesday morning were not injured. The cause of the sinking is not yet known.

Pompano Beach Fire-Rescue Capt. Randy DeVore says one diver made a distress call to authorities just past 2 a.m. The caller said their boat had sank. The men were found soon after and were taken to shore by a Sea Tow boat.

The Broward County Sheriff's Office used a helicopter while the Coast Guard helped find the men.
