The U.S. Coast Guard rescued three men, including a 90-year-old, on Lake Michigan after their boat collided with a break wall off the shore of Milwaukee.

Authorities say the men, including two in their 60s, were taken to a local hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. A fourth person on the 25-foot cabin cruiser wasn't injured.

The police and fire departments from Milwaukee also responded to the distress call about 9:30 p.m. Thursday
