Maryland – 22 people rescued from sinking boat


A good Samaritan rescued 22 people, including children, off a sinking workboat in the Chesapeake Bay. According to Candy Thomson of the Maryland Natural Resources Police, the boat, identified as the Karen N., began to sink after hitting something submerged southwest of Bloodsworth Island around 6 p.m. Wednesday. ABC News reports some of the people on the boat ended up in the water, including the children. Although the Coast Guard was alerted, another workboat pulled everyone aboard and brought them to the shore in Wingate. “You put 22 people in the water and get 22 people out, that’s pretty amazing,” Thomson said. The captain of the Karen N. was flown to a hospital and others were taken to local hospitals as well.
