Firefighters remove man stuck in vehicle partially underwater

A truck was partially underwater in Murrells Inlet near the boat landing Saturday around 9 a.m., according to Tim Johnson, manager of Creek Ratz.

Johnson said a man was stuck inside the truck and the Murrells Inlet Fire Department helped get him out.

Johnson said the man is safe and the truck has been removed from the water, but it took about two hours.

It happened near the boat landing in the inlet next to Crazy Sister Marina.

Johnson said it prevented people from using their boats in the water for a small amount of time.

No word yet on how the truck ended up in the water.
