Coast Guard rescues four people in North Carolina after boat engine fire
Saved by the Jacket
The Coast Guard helped four boaters after a boat engine fire in Back Sound near Fort Macon State Park, North Carolina.
“When we arrived on scene, two of the three people in the water were wearing life jackets,” said Petty Officer 3rd Class James Sellers, the coxswain of the response boat. “Thinking that you can put on a life jacket right before you enter the water is dangerous. We recommend that you wear your life jacket while boating to be prepared in the event of an emergency.”
