USCG responds to boat collision, assists 4 injured
The U.S. Coast Guard says it responded to a boat collision that injured four passengers aboard two vessels on Sinepuxent Bay near the Marsh Harbor Marina in Ocean City, Tuesday.
Watchstanders at Coast Guard Station Ocean City received the initial report of the accident from a good Samaritan at 5:20 p.m.
A 24-foot Special Purpose Craft-Shallow Water boatcrew from Coast Guard Station Ocean City launched to the scene.
The injured passengers were retrieved and taken to Station Ocean City where local EMS were standing by to provide assistance.
“One good thing to come out of this was that all the children aboard had their life jackets on,” said Petty Officer 2nd Class Jonathan Zanoni, a member of the responding boatcrew. “It could have been much worse.”
