PALAWAN—Five family members and 2 crew members were rescued after their motorized boat capsized off the coast of Puerto Princesa, Palawan Thursday.

The family was on an island-hopping tour along Honda Bay when their boat "Mart Grace 1" capsized due to rough seas from tropical depression Marilyn.

The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) personnel pulled all family members, including a toddler, and crew members to safety.—With reports from Rex Ruta and Dexter Ganibe, ABS-CBN News
