WABC-TV in New York reports that the Hornblower Cruises and Events boat ran into trouble near Governor's Island around 10 p.m. Saturday.

A number of agencies including the fire and police departments sent vessels to remove the passengers and brought them to a Manhattan pier.

It wasn't clear what caused the yacht to run aground.
