Capsized Boat

I received the following email message last night at 9 pm. We are glad there were no deaths. And hoping for a full recovery for the one person in serious condition. Many thanks to our local and national rescue personnel.

Boat Capsizes in Hatteras Inlet; 4 Passengers Carried to Ocracoke Shore
On Friday, May 25, at approximately 7 pm, a call came in to Hyde County Dispatch reporting a capsized 23' Grady White boat near the Hatteras Inlet. The 4 passengers of the boat were carried by ocean current two miles south onto Ocracoke beach shore.
One patient was transported to a local hospital via Coast Guard helicopter after receiving treatment from Hyde County EMS and Ocracoke Volunteer Fire Department. He was reported to be in serious condition at that time. The other three passengers did not need further care at that time.
This was a collaborative rescue effort by the Ocracoke Volunteer Fire Department, National Park Service, US Coast Guard, and Hyde County EMS.
It was reported that the boat capsized due to rough seas.
