Coast Guard safely transfers 118 people off grounded casino boat
Coast Guard response boats from Station Tybee Island, Georgia, ferry rescued passengers and crewmembers from the grounded casino boat Escapade near Tybee Island Wednesday, July 16, 2014. Coast Guard members aboard three 25-foot response boats and one 45-foot response boat from Station Tybee Island worked together to ferry 114 people from the grounded casino boat to the Coast Guard Cutters Maria Bray and Tarpon, which are larger vessels capable of carrying more people than the smaller response boats, and two Coast Guard helicopters hoisted four additional people off the casino ship.
