1 Dead, 5 Rescued After Boat Capsizes In Maryland

OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) — The Coast Guard says one person has died and five others were rescued after their boat capsized near Ocean City. 

The 18-foot pleasure boat capsized around 9 a.m. Saturday at the mouth of the Ocean City Inlet. 

Coast Guard officials say one of the six people on the boat was unresponsive when crews arrived Saturday morning. The man was pronounced dead at Atlantic General Hospital in Berlin after CPR efforts were unsuccessful. His name and age weren’t immediately available. 

Maryland State Police are investigating.

    Six people on a 18ft boat? That’s stupid enough for starters. How many were wearing life preservers, could read a chart, honor markers? Drinking? This is the price you pay for stupidly.

    Why didn’t they take this person to the new trama ward at Salisbury Hospital? How was the person transported? State police don’t put thier helicopter in service in O.C. til 11 a.m., did the coast guard fly this person? If not thats a long time and distance to transport a person. They call it the golden hour after a accident for a reason, that first hour makes all the difference in the world to weather you live die or you are completely messed up the rest of your life.
