Coast Guard rescues mother and son

BRUNSWICK, GA (WTOC) - A mom and her six-year-old were stuck in the water for hours before being pulled to safety by a Coast Guard helicopter.

Chantelle and Quame Pierre were stranded inside their kayak in a mud filled march near the Brunswick shore Sunday night.

A rescue chopper from Air Station Savannah got there just after midnight and hoisted the two up before landing at the Saint Simmons Island McKinnon Airport.
