Three Wilmington River Boating Accident Victims Found
GEORGIA - An accident news article on foxnews.com reports that searchers have tragically discovered the bodies of three missing boaters involved in a head-on boating collision on the Wilmington River.*
The death toll has tragically risen to five victims. According to the report, authorities say that two additional people were found deceased following the boating accident that happened on Saturday.
Georgia Department of Natural Resources Sergeant Cindy Miller reported that three boaters who were missing were finally found Sunday morning. The victims were discovered in close proximity to each other. At least four boaters were transported to local area hospitals following the boat crash. The names of the boating accident victims were not made public. The crash was the second accident involving a boat on the Wilmington River this month.
The head-on boating accident is currently under investigation by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. The boating collision occurred on the Wilmington River near Savannah, Georgia. Boating accidents are on the rise due to the increased number of boat sales. The spike in boat sals appears to be caused by the pandemic as people search for ways to have fun during the lock downs last year.
