Quattro bambini e due adulti sono stati salvati da una barca che affonda al largo della costa della Georgia

Due adulti e quattro bambini sono stati salvati venerdì dalla guardia costiera degli Stati Uniti al largo della costa della Georgia dopo che la loro barca ha bloccato un oggetto e ha iniziato ad affondare.

La barca di 17 piedi era vicino all'ingresso del St. Marys River on the Florida-Georgia border when it hit something and started taking on water, the Nassau County, Florida, Sheriff’s Office said in a Post di Facebook.
The US Coast Guard cutter Sea Dragon was returning from offshore and launched a small boat crew to rescue the six people from the boat, the Coast Guard said in a dichiarazione.
A marine unit from the sheriff’s office used a pump to remove the water from the boat before towing it to the Amelia Island boat ramp in Florida.
    The boat began taking on water after striking an object on Friday, febbraio 26.

    The marine unit then returned to the Sea Dragon to pick up the six people and ferried the group to the town of St. Marys in Georgia, ha detto l'ufficio dello sceriffo.
    There were no injuries reported.
      The Georgia Department of Natural Resources is investigating the boat accident, secondo l'ufficio dello sceriffo.
      In the Florida/southeast Georgia area, we remind boaters that during this time of year, the possibility of hypothermia still exists,” disse Boatswain’s Mate Kristian Sova, the Sea Dragon’s commanding officer. “If you can, remain with your boat and try to remain together as a group, this greatly increases the likelihood of first responders finding you if you’re ever in the need of assistance; this was a very fortunate outcome, special thanks to those involved in this rescue.
