No one was injured when a boat overturned at Percy Priest Lake in Nashville. 

The call initially came in around 5:45 a.m. Thursday for a welfare check after a man and his daughter came to the boat launch and saw the capsized vessel. 

There was a puncture hole in the side of the fishing boat. 

Officials were able to make contact with the owner, who said they were out on the boat Wednesday night when it started taking on water. 

They swam to shore, thinking they would get it this morning. Sky 5 flew over the area, which showed the boat in the water.
