The dinghy collided with a motor vessel around 12:25 p.m., causing the dinghy to flip over and the father and son to be thrown into the water, Coast Guard Seaman Adam Stanton said.

The father was able to climb on top of the capsized hull, but his son, who is in his 20s, was trapped underneath the dinghy, he said.

The Coast Guard learned of the accident and dispatched a 25-foot response boat and helicopter to the scene. Both were rescued and taken to Oyster Point, where one was given CPR, San Francisco fire Lt. Mindy Talmadge said.

The victims were taken to San Francisco General Hospital by ambulance.

The father is in stable condition, but Stanton said he did not know the son’s condition.

The South San Francisco Fire Department and the San Francisco Fire Department provided assistance.
