      Boater who died in Little River identified

      Authorities released the identity Thursday of a boater who died in an accident near Bird Island in Little River Inlet on Sunday.

      Kurtis Hutchison, 26, of Murrell's Inlet died Sunday of massive trauma from being hit by a boat and propellers, according to Deputy Coroner Tony Hendrick.

      No charges have been filed. But the Department of Natural Resources says they are possible.
