Four rescued from sailboat in Santa Barbara Harbor

A family of four, including a six-month-old baby and a dog, had to be rescued Sunday morning after their sailboat broke free of its mooring in Santa Barbara.

The Coast Guard and Santa Barbara Harbor Patrol used a helicopter to lower a rescue swimmer onto the boat, and a motor lifeboat helped bring the family to shore.
