Savannah, Tybee Coast Guard Aid in Rescue of Stranded Boaters

The Savannah and Tybee Island Coast Guard were the answer to some prayers yesterday as they rescued three South Carolina boaters who had been missing more than 12 hours.

The Coast Guard found them bobbing in the ocean on their capsized boat, miles off the South Carolina coast. Helicopters from Savannah and Charleston, a cutter from Station Tybee and an airplane from Clearwater searched through the night to find them.

All three men are okay and home.
