GOOD NEWS for seven people (including three children) who were missing since the night of Saturday, September 4. They were rescued by the U.S. Coast Guard the morning of Sunday, September 5, about 25 miles off the coast of Charleston, South Carolina.
All seven were aboard a 38-foot powerboat that sank after the engine compartment flooded. All were wearing life jackets.
They had no emergency equipment with them and were rescued by the light from the moon.
“They were cold, they were tired, but most importantly, they were alive,” said Petty Officer 1st Class Christopher Evanson of the Coast Guard station in Jacksonville, Florida.
