North Carolina: Boaters Rescued Near Topsail Island

Saved by the Jacket

The Coast Guard rescued five people from the water eight miles off Topsail Island.
“This is a perfect example of how vital it is to not only make sure you have life jackets on board, but also that they are readily available in case of an emergency,” said Stephen Sawyer, Sector North Carolina command duty officer for the case. “This situation also illustrates how important it is to work closely with our local partners. Pender County 911 relayed critical information to us about the vessel’s position that helped us reach the people quickly.”
