Two People Rescued From Sinking Boat Off Lowcountry Coast

The Coast Guard rescued two boaters Friday, after their 30-foot pleasure boat started sinking.

Gary and Sylvia Hawn, from Toronto, Canada, were about two miles off of Parris Island Spit when they started taking in water, and had to call for help.

Two Coast Guard rescue boats and a helicopter went out to rescue the pair, but weren't able to save the boat.
