Going down: Passengers being taken off the Massachusetts. More photos, video from the Coast Guard.
The Coast Guard reports the Massachusetts "ran hard aground" around 10 a.m. at the President Roads South Channel off Deer Island - apparently on a rock known as Devil's Back.
The 168 passengers and six crew members were taken off the boat by another boat and brought to Pemberton Pier in Hull. The Coast Guard says one person suffered an unspecified back injury during the incident, which blocked one of the channels into the harbor.
