Seven people -- including a 4-year-old girl -- were rescued Sunday after being afloat off the Florida Keys for 20 hours after their boat capsized in rough waters, according to a story in the Miami Herald.

An 80-year-old woman is presumed dead after going underwater and not surfacing, according to the report. The boaters were not wearing life jackets according to initial reports, a Cost Guard spokesman told the Herald.
