Coast Guard simulation turns into real rescue

Posted: Updated:

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - A simulated drill gets interrupted by a real life rescue.

The Coast Guard was working with fire and emergency crews on a simulated marsh rescue when smoke was seen from the Richmond Hill area.

Turns out three people had to jump ship to escape a fire and the Coast Guard quickly offered help.

Crews quickly focused their attention on those in genuine distress.

No word on if anyone was hurt during the rescue or if the original practice drill will be rescheduled.
