Emergency personnel rescue stranded boater

Susquehanna No. 4 and Columbia No. 1 were among the rescue companies responding to a report of a boater stranded near the Veterans Memorial Bridge on Friday afternoon.  The boat, which was spotted a few piers out from the Wrightsville side, was towed by emergency crews to the ramp near the John Wright Outlet in Wrightsville. No injuries were reported.

Putting in on the Columbia side . . .

Returning on the Wrightsville side . . .

The boater was apparently a duck hunter whose boat motor had stalled, stranding him along the southern edge of the Veterans Memorial Bridge.
