MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The U.S. Coast Guard has rescued a 90-year-old and three other men on Lake Michigan after their boat collided with a break wall off the shore of Milwaukee.

Three men, including two in their 60s, were taken to a hospital for injuries that weren't considered life-threatening. The Coast Guard says one has a possible concussion, another has broken ribs and a third showed signs of whiplash.

A fourth person on the 30-foot cabin cruiser wasn't injured.

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

The Coast Guard said Friday the condition of the three injured men wasn't immediately available.
