Walton County Sheriff's Office was called out at 7 a.m. to rescue two individuals who had capsized a small boat east of Clyde B. Wells Bridge. 

Wendy Ammons with WCSO said two individuals on the jon boat capsized early in the morning, though she wasn't sure what time the accident happened nor the cause. 

"The call came in around 7 o'clock," she said, referring to the call report. 

One man has already been recovered and taken in for treatment.
