ANTIOCH -- A man and two children were found floating on a log late Friday after their Jet Ski broke down in the water several hours earlier, police said. The 30-year-old man, the 9-year-old girl and the 5-year-old boy, all from Antioch, were reported missing early Friday evening by their family after they failed to show up at the Antioch Marina, said Cpl. James McMurry of the Antioch Police Department.

At 8:16 p.m., Antioch police, along with the Contra Costa Sheriff's Office aviation and marine patrols, began searching the waters off Antioch and up into the Delta.

McMurry did not say where the three were found, but did say they were rushed back to the marina, where paramedics treated them for hypothermia before releasing them to their family.

According to McMurry, the Jet Ski experienced a mechanical problem, causing it to sink and leaving the three stranded.

The identities of the three people rescued were not released.
