A Coast Guard helicopter was deployed by Air Station Savannah over the weekend to rescue a man stranded on a sandbar at the north end of South Carolina’s Kiawah Island.
The man had been hiking on the beach and became stranded on a sandbar after the rising tide cut him off from shore. The man then contacted the Coast Guard for assistance.
The incident is a reminder to people to be aware of rising and receding tides and to plan their trips accordingly.
