All five people aboard a 14-foot boat are safe and unhurt after their craft capsized Sunday in gusty winds on a lake in northern Minnesota, authorities said.

The St. Louis County Sheriff's Office and Rescue Squad along with Morse Fire were called around 2:30 p.m. to a water emergency on White Iron Lake south of Ely. 

Authorities said all five people aboard the boat were wearing life jackets and were able to swim to a nearby island, where they were rescued and brought to shore.
