Dramatic video shows the U.S. Coast Guard members rescue bachelor partygoers who were stranded after their boat ran aground on a sandbar near Capers Island, South Carolina.
Coast Guard officials received a call a little after 2:30 a.m. ET Saturday that a 21-foot recreational boat was stuck on a sandbar, according to the Coast Guard. A Coast Guard Air Station Savannah helicopter crew arrived at 3:50 a.m. ET and rescue crews pulled the stranded men to safety.
According to the USCG, all eight boaters are in “good condition.”
The U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Savannah posted a photo on Facebook of the bachelor party and the crew members who rescued them.
“It was a busy night for the duty crew last night. The crew saved eight lives from a bachelor party turned rescue,” the post said. “Great job by LT Jon Magin, LTjg Nathan R. Brock, AET2 Joe Ford, and AST3 Jack Lacey.”
