2 women rescued from water in Dorchester

Two women were rescued from the waters off Malibu Beach in Dorchester in the middle of the night, authorities said.

Boston firefighters received a 911 call at 2:54 a.m. Wednesday from Savin Hill reporting screaming coming from the beach.

The firefighters performed a full technical rescue, recovering the closer woman first, then her friend.

Both women were evaluated by EMS on scene, but MacDonald did not know if they were taken to the hospital.
