Coast Guard rescues boaters near Georgetown

Aug 17, 2011 10:15:00 AM - thestate.com
A Coast Guard helicopter has rescued two boaters reported overdue near Georgetown in a 15-foot jon boat.

The Coast Guard says it received word about 9 p.m. Tuesday that the Horry County men were overdue. The helicopter, a 25-foot Coast Guard rescue boat and a Department of Natural Resources vessel began searching.

The men, ages 56 and 28, were found in a secluded marsh shortly after midnight Wednesday. They were hoisted to the helicopter and taken to the Georgetown Airport.

The Coast Guard said the fishermen had filed a float plan which helped searchers find them more quickly.
