St. Petersburg Fire Rescue rescued two adults and a child from a capsized boat.
 
According to SPFR, the boat flipped over near the Dick Misener Bridge on Tuesday morning.
 
The call was put in to 911 after someone driving over the bridge saw the three clinging to the boat.
 
Crews believe the boat capsized due to weather conditions.
 
PCSO deputy David Bianchet said it was a "bad day to be out on the water."
 
Two adult males and a 9-year-old boy were rescued from the water.
 
All three are being evaluated.
