9News Denver reports the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office says 15 students from CSU were on a charter boat off of Shell Key. Five of the students went swimming off the side of the anchored boat, but only four were able to swim back because of rough winds and waves.

While a charter captain was helping the four swimmers, another crew member jumped in the water to help the fifth. Authorities believe the two men may have been caught in the fast moving current and were not wearing life jackets.

Coast Guard officials cautioned boaters to stay vigilant during this week’s stormy weather.
