Boat Crash Kills One in Manistee
The Manistee County Sheriff's Dive Team is bringing up the remains of a charter fishing boat that crashed and sank early this morning killing one man. The crash occurred at approximately 5 A.M. this morning as the boat 'Kid-Again' struck the south pier at the mouth of the Manistee Channel in Manistee. Another boater was able to pull all seven passengers from the water and bring them to the Coast Guard station. One 55 year old male passenger was killed and two more were taken to West Shore Medical Center for treatment of injuries. Investigators say details of the crash are unknown at this point but it is believed the dense fog may be to blame.
