UMATILLA, Ore. —

Rescue boats from the Umatilla County, Ore., sheriff's office and a rural fire district responded to pluck two fishermen out of the Columbia River near Umatilla after their boat sank.

The East Oregonian reports ( http://is.gd/w6HSJM) the fishermen were brothers who were both wearing life jackets. The men were rescued after they floated for about 15 minutes Thursday morning.

The 20-foot boat sank underneath the Interstate 82 bridge while the men were pulling up anchor.
