Four people were injured in a boating accident off the coast of Georgetown, Maine, according to Boston.com. The 22-foot boat ran aground near MacMahon Island off the banks of the Sheepscot River. A nearby lobsterman, Steve Thibodeau Sr., took rescuers to the site of the crash.
Thibodeau said the boat left Boothbay Harbor and ran ashore around 7:30 pm on September 18. All four passengers were taken to a local hospital with minor injuries, according to the Portland Press Herald.
The owner and operator of the boat was identified as 76-year-old Glenn Wise. The men were reportedly traveling home from the island.
“Georgetown is a pretty tight-knit community,” said Main Marine Patrol Sgt. Dan White. “A lot of the first responders there could be relatives of these three guys. That’s how it works pretty much all along these coastal towns.”
