Overturned boat found off Pawleys Island

Firefighters and rescuers responded to the Pawleys Island Pier area for a report of an unoccupied boat overturned off-shore, around 12:30 Tuesday.

The boat appears to have just broken away, and no one was on board, said Midway Fire Assistant Chief Jim Crawford.

Around 1:30 p.m., the boat was about 2 miles off shore. Crawford says if the boat is a navigational issue, it will be up to the Coast Guard to remove it.
