Police: 1 dead, 5 saved after Va. boat accident

Police say one person is dead and five others were being treated at area hospitals after their 18-foot aluminum boat capsized in the Chesapeake Bay.
Virginia Beach police spokesman Adam Bernstein corrected earlier information from the Coast Guard that two people died.
Police say the six boaters phoned in a distress call to the Coast Guard shortly before 9 a.m. Wednesday.
Police say the victims were taken to two local hospitals.
A spokeswoman at one of the hospitals said she could not disclose patient conditions.
(This version CORRECTS with police saying 1 dead instead of 2, that previous Coast Guard information citing 2 deaths was wrong.)
