SEATTLE - A sailboat's mast was stuck in train tracks near the Ballard Locks Sunday afternoon.

According to the Coast Guard, two people were on the boat and are not hurt.

Other boats were still able to get through a wide channel.

The situation did shut one train line down, and one train was delayed for an hour.

The mast does not appear to have damaged the structure of the bridge, but officials are continuing to investigate.

According to the Coast Guard, a vessel assisted in removing the sailboat at about 5:45 p.m.
