Pilot and Good Samaritan Help Save Two Men from Stono River after their Boat Capsized
Saved by the Jacket
Mark Derry and Barry Hurcomb, who have been friends for more than 40 years, decided to go spottail fishing on the Stono River Friday afternoon. Derry says a typical day of fishing turned into a day they would never forget. “We happened to look back and said oh Lord! Where is this water coming from?”, he then realized their boat was beginning to capsize. The men were able to put on life jackets before the boat was fully submerged into the water.
