    2 missing boaters found alive in Galveston Bay, Coast Guard says

    August 19, 2019


    MIRACLE IN GALVESTON BAY. TWO BOATERS MISSING FOR DAYS FOUND ALIVE. AFTER LAST NIGHT, IT GOT TOUGH. ONE SURVIVOR TELLING HIS STORY EXCLUSIVELY TO CHANNEL 2. THE COLD WATER BEATING ACROSS THE BACK OF MY NECK AND MY BACK. WHAT THEY WENT THROUGH HOPING HELP WOULD COME. AND CHEERS AND TEARS FROM THE BOATERS’ FRIENDS AS THEY LEARN THEY WERE SAFE. WHAT AN INCREDIBLE STORY THESE MEN HAVE TO TELL. CLOSE TO A MIRACLE AS YOU GET. AFTER THEIR BOAT CAPSIZED, THEY WERE ON THE OPEN WATER TWO LONG DAYS AND TWO LONG NIGHTS FIGHTING FOR THEIR VERY LIVES. WE’VE BEEN TRACKING THEIR STORY SINCE THEY WERE DECLARED MISSING AFTER SETTING OUT FROM SAN LEON ON MONDAY. THEN THIS MORNING, THEY WERE FOUND ON TWO SEPARATE OIL RIG PLATFORMS A MILE APART. ONE OF THOSE BOATERS IS TELLING HIS STORY ONLY ON 2 FROM WHAT IT WAS LIKE SWIMMING FOR THEIR LIVES TO THE MOMENT THEY WERE RESCUED. HE SPOKE WITH ROBERT ARNOLD FROM HIS HOSPITAL BED. ROBERT? Reporter: RAY JISIC IS DEHYDRATED, SUNBURNED AND ALIVE. YOU’LL UNDERSTAND IT WAS SHEAR FORCE OF WILL THAT KEPT THEM ALIVE. RAY, WE’RE TAKING ON WATER. I SAID START THE BOAT. Reporter: HE SAYS 30 SECONDS LATER, WAVES CAPSIZED THEIR 20-FOOT BOAT. A BIG SURGE OF WATER COME IN AND THEN ANOTHER ONE HIT US FROM THE SIDE AND JUST BOTH JUST WENT — HAD NO TIME TO GRAB ANYTHING. NOTHING. NO KEYS, NO WALLET, NO PHONE. NO NOTHING. EVERYTHING GONE. Reporter: HE AND MICHAEL WATKINS MANAGED TO SWIM TO A GAS PLATFORM WHERE THEY SURVEYED FOR SEVERAL HOURS. EVENTUALLY THE PAIR TRIED TO USE AN ICE COOLER THEY HELD ON TO TO MAKE THEIR WAY TO ANOTHER PLATFORM CLOSER TO LAND. BUT AS SOON AS THEY HIT THE WATER, THEY WERE SEPARATED. WATKINS MADE IT BACK TO THE PLATFORM. JISIC WAS KNOCKED AROUND BY THE WAVES UNTIL HE FLOATED NEAR A COLLECTION OF OLD PIPES STICKING OUT OF THE WATER. THAT WAS LITERALLY THE PIPES THAT CAME UP AND HAD A COUPLE DIFFERENT LITTLE ARMS THAT HAD WENT OUT, SOME WERE BUSTED OFF AND EVERYTHING AROUND IT WAS BUSTED AND SHARP EDGES. Reporter: THOSE PIPES WERE ALL HE HAD TO CLING TO WHEN INTENSE STORMS POUNDED OUR AREA TUESDAY NIGHT AND WEDNESDAY MORNING. TIE A ROPE AROUND THE FOAM AND MY WRIST AND SQUEEZED DOWN IN BETWEEN THE PIPES UNDERNEATH IT JUST CUTTING THE HELL OUT OF MYSELF AND SIT, UNDERNEATH IT, IT WAS HAILING AND RAINING AND 30, 40 MILE-AN-HOUR WINDS AND IT DROPPED PROBABLY 30, 40 DEGREES. I THOUGHT MIKE GOT HIT BY A LIGHTNING BOLT. REALLY, I COULDN’T SEE HIM. Reporter: IT WASN’T UNTIL THIS MORNING THAT HE FINALLY SAW WATKINS HAD IN FACT SURVIVED THE STORM. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT JASIC IS DESPITE THE ALL-OUT ASSAULT ON HIS MIND AND SENSE, THE MOST FRUSTRATING PART CAME AT NIGHT. THEY WERE CLOSE ENOUGH TO LAND THAT THEY COULD SEE PEOPLE SEARCHING FOR THEM, BUT TOO FAR AWAY TO GET THEIR ATTENTION. HE SAID HE FINALLY GOT A COAST GUARD PILOT’S ATTENTION BY WAVING HIS WHITE T-SHIRT IN THE AIR. REPORTING LIVE FROM THE CLEAR LAKE AREA, ROBERT ARNOLD, KPRC CHANNEL 2 NEWS. WOW. THAT’S ALL WE CAN SAY. WE HAVE TEAM COVERAGE OF THIS INCREDIBLE STORY FOR YOU. SAMANTHA PTASHKIN LIVE WITH THE GLEEFUL REACTION FROM THOSE BOATERS’ FRIENDS AND FAMILY. Reporter: YEAH. THE FISHING COMMUNITY OVER IN SAN LEON WHERE THOSE TWO BOATERS LEFT ON MONDAY T IS A VERY TIGHT-KNIT COMMUNITY, SO YOU CAN IMAGINE THE REACTION OF ALL OF THOSE FELLOW FISHERMEN WHEN THEY FOUND OUT THAT THEIR TWO FRIENDS WERE ALIVE. I BELIEVE WE HAVE VIDEO OF THEM OVER AT THE AMERICAN LEGION FROM SAN LEON. THEY WERE WATCHING THE COAST GUARD RESCUE VIDEO ALL AFTERNOON. THEY COULD NOT BELIEVE THAT THIS HAPPENED. IN FACT, WE TALKED TO ONE OF THEM WHO SAID THAT AFTER 48 HOURS, YOU ONLY HAVE A 2% CHANCE OF SURVIVING THOSE WATERS. NOT SURE IF THAT’S INDEED CORRECT. BUT THAT’S WITH THAT FISHERMAN WAS SAYING OUT THERE. THEY SAY THEY’VE LOST A LOT OF FRIENDS IN THE WATER. THEY’VE SEEN A LOT OF FRIENDS DROWN. THEY’VE SEEN A LOT OF BOATS GO DOWN THROUGH THE YEARS. SO THEY DEFINITELY DID NOT THINK THAT THIS WOULD HAPPEN. THEY THEMSELVES ACTUALLY SET OUT ON THE WATER AFTER THIS HAPPENED ON BOATS TRYING TO LOOK FOR THEIR FRIENDS THEMSELVES AND ONE OF THEM SAID TO US, HE SAID, WE WERE PRETTY SURE THAT WE WERE GOING TO FIND BODIES. NOT PEOPLE. IMAGINE THEIR REACTION THIS MORNING WHEN THEY FOUND OUT THAT THEIR FRIENDS WERE INDEED ALIVE AND THAT THEY HAD SURVIVED FOR THE PAST COUPLE OF DAYS OUT ON THE WATER. SO SOME VERY HAPPY NEWS FOR ALL OF THOSE FISHERMEN IN SAN LEON THIS AFTERNOON. I ALSO TALKED TO THE WIFE EARLIER OF THE OTHER FISHERMAN, MIKE WATKINS. HE’S BEEN OVER AT BAY AREA REGIONAL MEDICAL CENTER ALL DAY. HIS WIFE SAYS THAT HE IS ALSO DOING WELL AND HE’S EXPECTED TO RETURN HOME TONIGHT. FOR NOW REPORTING LIVE FROM WEBSTER, SAMANTHA PTASHKIN, KPRC CHANNEL 2 NEWS. THANK YOU. WE DO HAVE VIDEO OF THE COAST GUARD RESCUES ON OUR WEB SITE. YOU CAN WATCH THEM AGAIN BY

    Alien Orbs crashing on earth?

    August 18, 2019


    Metallic spheres I have looked at the many claimed extraterrestrial
    objects that have been found here on planet Earth. We have seen objects like the dropa stone
    discs and the claimed extraterrestrial remains found in Peru and Russia. Recently there has been an increase in the
    number of strange objects falling from the sky. Particularly Metallic spheres. These Mysterious Metallic Spheres are tumbling
    from Space and landing all over the planet. So what could they be? Are they some sort of probe or maybe a seed
    of some as yet to be understood alien lifeform? Let’s take a look. Welcome to if. Cryptozoology, ufology, and the paranormal. hit that subscribe button and ring that bell
    so you never miss a new video Many locations around the world have been
    reporting metal spheres crashing into the ground, spotted streaking from the sky in
    a fiery flash, they then smash into the earth creating large craters and scorching the ground. They then are said to roll away from the area
    of impact, some travelling as far as a mile and a half away from the original impact location. Australia, China, Brazil, Spain and Central
    America have all seen these spheres landing but none have found a definitive answer to
    what or where they are coming from. One recent location of a metallic sphere impact
    was Vietnam. Three of the metal orbs fell to earth in the
    north of country bordering China and they have left the military scratching their heads
    as to what they are. Tuyen Quang province was the site of a large
    military investigation which was reported by local media agencies, the military were
    spread over a wide area of the province as the three metal balls were spread some distance
    apart. These objects were of different sizes and
    different weights the heaviest was reported as being 45 kilograms. Locals claimed they could hear ‘thunder’ in
    the moments before the mysterious items crashed into the surrounding the field. One of the orbs, which weighed 6kg, narrowly
    missed a house, landing in the garden of a house in the Yen Bai region, while the smallest,
    weighing only 250 grams, landed on a roof before rolling onto the ground. The officials have yet to issue an official
    determination as to what the spheres are, but some have claimed that they are the fuel
    tanks or compressed air tanks from orbiting Russian satellites. The similarities in the Vietnamese metallic
    balls and the others found around the world can easily be seen, as in a Spanish a orb
    crash reported by the Residents of a small village. These residents of the Spanish village have
    been left with many questions after theses metal orbs landed in their fields. The farmers found many objects spread all
    over the area and the local media issued reports of objects that were around one meter (3.2
    feet) in diameter and weighed in around about 20 kilograms (44 pounds). The Spanish authorities took the incident
    very seriously and went ahead with deploying their civil guard. The soldiers were equipped with hazmat suits
    that are capable of protecting them against threats from chemical, biological, radiological,
    and nuclear agents. This team inspected the metallic orbs and
    found that they weren’t explosive and that they didn’t contain any dangerous materials. The mayor of the region in which these things
    fell spoke of his concerns saying “I think it is a more serious issue than
    it seems. Citizens have real concerns about what is
    happening and deserve an explanation, where are these objects coming from? Why are they falling here precisely? Will more fall? “And what would happen if any of these balls
    fall into a highly populated area?” He raises some valid points of concern, is
    just coincidence that these balls are falling in unpopulated areas, could this show some
    planning to the locations in which they fell or is it just a matter of time until someone
    is struck by one of these metal marbles. Crossing continents to India and an incident
    that happened on that most unfortunate of days, Friday the 13th. More metallic orbs fell to earth in What authorities
    of the Indian region said they considered to be space debris
    A spokesman from the police said: “It looks like a piece from an aerospace vehicle, but
    not a commercial plane. It could be a piece of satellite or something
    similar.” There has been those that say the object which
    fell was not from outer space, they base this idea on the lack of an impact-crater. Space debris tends to fall to the ground at
    terminal velocity. For a sphere roughly one meter in diameter,
    IFL Science estimated that the terminal velocity would be 9.4 meters per second, or 21 miles
    per hour. This would be enough to hurt a person, but
    not leave a crater. The next location of metallic sphere impact
    is Peru a land often associated with ancient
    aliens saw 3 strange metallic spheres crashing into the ground this event leaving scientist
    baffled. In total three spheres fell from the sky and
    were caught on video by many people living in the Peruvian villages. Streaking through the sky like comets these
    objects are often spotted thanks to the glowing tails that flows behind them. The numerous sightings has had people asking
    questions about who could have done this and where the spheres came from initially. It would certainly seem odd that if this phenomena
    is attributed to manmade craft that so many parts should be fall off and tumbling to earth
    on such a regular basis! This is when the extraterrestrial element
    to the story can be found with many speculating that these metallic orbs are some precursor
    an alien invasion. Maybe some of the past incidents can provide
    us with more of an answer? Going back to the year 2011, a year when one
    of these cosmic spheres crashed or landed in Namibia. This orb had a 14 inch diameter and its impact
    left a crater more than a foot deep and 12.5 feet in width. Local authorities were quick to quarantine
    the impact site but quickly came to the conclusion that the object posed no threat. Maybe we can find some answers in a more detailed
    description. Those that have found a metallic sphere report
    that they are hollow, when tapping on the outer shell an echo can be heard, and when
    they land they are strong enough to remain intact and even though they burn furiously
    as they enter the atmosphere they survive reentry relatively unscathed. It is noted that The orbs seem to be constructed
    of separate closed hemispheric pieces, welded together in a shape that is clearly manufactured. The authorities often claim that these objects
    are from manmade orbiting vehicles as example the explanation for the Namibian Sphere was
    said to be hydrazine tank(s) from unmanned spacecraft, the propulsion storage cells for
    satellites. They explain the accompanying booms as being
    a sonic sound blasts due to the tremendous speeds the balls are travelling when they
    enter our atmosphere. They move so fast that they break the sound
    barrier in the same way as jet. The Namibian sphere was featured in A handout
    photo provided by the National Forensic Science Institute which showed the giant metallic
    ball, 1 meter in diameter weighing some 6 kilograms. Space scientists suggested that the source
    of the sphere was most likely a failed satellite that may have exploded scattering pieces over
    a wide area. To me these objects do not sound like debris
    from an explosion, they do after all remain largely undamaged and we mustn’t forget
    they somehow always land in unpopulated areas!! The scientist say that this because the tanks
    are constructed from Titanium and are often wrapped in protective materials, they say
    these materials burn off on reentry leaving the metal ball to crash into the ground. If this is true then where are the other pieces
    of the satellites or even small chunks of debris which would have to be found near the
    metallic spheres and what about the owners of these satellites surely they would be able
    to tell us if they had a lost a satellite. It just doesn’t sound that clear cut, too
    many questions remain. These objects remind me of the Klerksdorp
    spheres, small objects, often spherical to disc-shaped, that have been collected by miners
    and rockhounds from 3-billion-year-old pyrophyllite deposits mined by Wonderstone Ltd., near Ottosdal,
    South Africa. I looked into them in the video linked above. Could this new round of orbs discoveries be
    of the same origin, could that origin be extraterrestrial? These Space balls, are of various sizes and
    are most often metallic most are distinctly extraterrestrial in nature, others have been
    identified to be space debris from man-made satellite parts. The as yet to be identified examples of cosmic
    spheres remain mysterious, what do you think they are where did they come from or who sent
    them? Let me know in the comments below.

    COOK ISLANDS DIVING | Rarotonga Ghost Corals 👻

    August 18, 2019


    [music] Good morning from paradise I’m heading
    out next door to Cafe Tuakata to get real coffee. It’s still 7:00. I think they just opened at 7. And it’s going to be a much better day today! [music] Done with the coffee. One thing that I
    overlooked during this trip is the problem with mosquitoes
    because everywhere I go on either Rarotonga and Aitutaki there’s a lot of
    mosquitoes everywhere and even in some of the cafes and restaurants, especially
    if they are in the outdoor setting they will have a mosquito repellent and
    that is a very handy thing to have. The plan is to do scuba diving which
    I’m very excited about. Hey puppy! Hello! I’m Halef!
    “I’m Amy”
    Amy nice to meet you! Thank you! [music] Just got here Muri Beach at Pacific Divers.
    Just get myself the equipment that I need and we’re gonna head out here pretty soon. It’s gonna be a good diving day! [music] Arrived on the boat! [music and people chatting in the background] [music] We’re just enjoying our cup of Milo. Got a
    30 minute break here before our second dive. [music] Alright guys! That concludes the day of
    diving. It actually started getting pretty cold although the water
    temperature was 26 degrees. It is definitely a very unique sight. There are
    a few things that I’ve never seen anywhere in the world before. One of the
    major ones is the ghost coral. So it’s a soft coral but as soon as you start
    getting close to them, they just turning completely white. I’ve never seen
    anything like that before. A bunch of nudibranch. I’m so excited
    about nudibranch. Unfortunately it’s only one species. And another thing is the
    hard coral that is very big and they just gray and looks like Darth Vader’s
    helmet. Spotted a few moray eels and also parrotfish. A bunch of trigger fish and
    then we actually saw a two loggerhead turtles at the second dive. So right now
    I’m about to have lunch just right behind me here is a Trader Jack’s and I
    was told by my dive master earlier they have really good pizza so I’m gonna see
    what they have. [music] Just ordered my lunch. I asked for the
    Te Ika Mata which is fresh local fish marinated in Mau Ke lime juice mixed with
    coconut cream fresh vegetable and served with steamed taro and also flat white
    because I feel like coffee is always a good thing to have during lunch! [music] It’s very fresh you can definitely taste
    the seafood and the coconut. It’s very good One thing that I’m still a bit confused
    about is the tipping policy here on Cook Islands. I talk to a lot of locals, Kiwis, and
    Australians and they said they do not expect any tips on restaurants like this. But every time I pay with the card they always come up a bill and a gratuity or
    a tip column always appears and I was suggested by a lot of people just to ignore it. Supposedly Cook Islands don’t accept tips. [music] But today, hopefully it will be a good day!
    Oh hi! There’s a dog. Oh. Where’s the dog? The dog. Right there. And my flip flops are kinda squeaky! Can you hear it? [humming the Death Star theme from Star Wars]

    Why Fish Can Drink Salt Water And We Can’t

    Why Fish Can Drink Salt Water And We Can’t

    August 16, 2019


    Salt is everywhere on our planet, but some
    animals evolved to live in it while, others didn’t; what happened there? What caused this
    split? Sup salty dogs, thanks for watching DNews,
    I’m Trace. Water is everywhere and is one of the main reasons life was able to evolve
    on Earth. It’s pretty great. Salt is also everywhere. Salt and water together, make
    up most of the water on our planet and it’s a major component of the beginning of life
    as we know it! Organisms need salt to survive. Salt draws
    water out of cells in process called osmosis. Osmosis is the tendency of water to flow across
    a membrane to balance salinity. Essentially, nature wants to make sure there’s a balanced
    level of salt everywhere. This is why if you drink saltwater you can die of dehydration
    — the water-salt balance gets out of whack and water gets pulled out of your cells. It’s
    pretty serious. And yet, as boney fish moved from a salty
    sea into freshwater (or sweetwater), they had to eat salts to maintain that salt-water
    balance. They still do this today, urinating any excess salt — sometimes up to a third
    of their body weight a day. We do this too, which is why we crave (and love) SALT. But
    this brings us to the big question — if saltwater fish are drinking saltwater constantly, how
    do they avoid dehydration due to osmosis?! Well, there are two answers. One comes built
    in. The gills of some saltwater species, like the flatfish: turbot, have adapted to carry
    more of a special enzyme called “gill Na+/K+ ATPase.” This allows their gills to leach
    salt from their bodies back into the ocean. Without this adaptation they’d die because
    of that high salinity. But, some species of eel, salmon, bass, and
    flounder have adaptations that let them move between fresh and saltwater! Species which
    can survive in a variety of salinities are referred to as euryhaline; some even actively
    adapt their gills or their kidneys… There are a lot of species osmoregulating in a lot
    of different ways. This is a great example of how evolution solves a problem along many
    different paths, something scientists call convergent evolution! SO AWESOME. So, lemme give you a couple examples: anadromous
    fish, are born in freshwater and live there for months before they make for saltwater.
    In Atlantic Salmon, an enzyme called type 2 deiodinase is produced in response to the
    longer daylight hours in spring. Puberty ain’t just weird for humans. This enzyme alters
    the salmon’s gills, initiating osmoregulation so they can safely swim into salty water!
    This is reversed when they return to rivers and streams to breed and start the process
    with thier own lil’ salmons. And a 2013 study in Molecular & Cellular Proteomics,
    detailed how a DIFFERENT adaptation evolved in tilapia. When placed into salted water
    gradually, the researchers found tilapia gills adapted, producing a specialized protein called
    NDRG1. This let the tilapia survive in a saline environment — as long as they had time to
    slowly adapt. A lot fish evolution has happened in the last
    400 million years. Fish have spread into pretty much every water-based environment on the
    planet. After the Great Dying 250 million years ago which wiped out 95 percent of all
    marine species, evolution had to figure out how to osmoregulate again. Through an assortment
    of convergent evolutionary adaptations FRESHWATER fish repopulated the oceans — learning to
    deal with the super-salty water. Eventually, they made it to land as well, when a fish
    named eusthenopteron evolved into amphibians — and tetrapods — like you and me! Without
    salt, and being able to regulate it, life as we know it wouldn’t exist. Evolution is the best.

    Rescued Boaters Say They Were Lost At Sea For Days

    August 13, 2019


    BROWARD COUNTY AND BACK DOWN TO HIALEAH. THEY COULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR A STRING OF ROBBERIES. MYSTERY ETSY. THE COAST GUARD, SAVING TWO VOTERS IN THE WATERS OFF SOUTH FLORIDA. THE CAPTAIN WHO SAW THEM SAYS HE HAS QUESTIONS ABOUT THEIR STORY. PETER D’OENCH IS LIVE WITH MORE. PETER? Reporter: RUDABEH SHAHBAZI THE COAST GUARD SAID THE CALL CAME IN FROM A GOOD SAMARITAN ABOUT A BOAT THAT WAS STRANDED WITH TWO MEN ON BOARD OFF HAULOVER BEACH. THE VESSEL RIGHT NOW IS DOCKED HERE AT THE HAULOVER MARINE CENTER AMID THIS STRANGE SITE. THE ENGINE COVER IS MISSING. WE SPOKE WITH A GOOD SAMARITAN. CAPTAIN CHARLIE SAYS HE WAS ON HIS CHARTER BOAT ON A FISHING TRIP 12 MILES OFF HAULOVER BEACH WHEN HE HEADED BACK TO SHORE AND SPOTTED THESE TWO MEN IN THEIR VESSEL, ADRIFT. I SAW OF VESSEL THAT PUT THE LITTLE WEIRD. I FIGURED THEY WERE ON THE WIND BEING THAT THEY HAD NO POWER. DIDN’T GET TO CLOSE BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT GOES ON. FUNNY THINGS CAN HAPPEN. I GOT CLOSE ENOUGH TO SEE TWO OCCUPANTS. THEY SEEMED TO BE OKAY. THEY WERE WEATHERD. THEY WERE SUNBURNT. Reporter: THE COAST GUARD SAYS THE MEN SAID THEY WERE FISHING WHEN THEIR BOAT CAME DISABLED TWO DAYS AGO. IT SAYS THE CUDDY CABIN WAS FOUND EAST OF HAULOVER BEACH. MIAMI FIRE RESCUE TODAY TO BE HAULOVER MARINE CENTER WHERE A COAST GUARD ZODIAC STOPPED BY TO TAKE X-RAYS. CAPTAIN CHARLIE SAID THE BOAT LOOKS SUSPICIOUS. THE COWING IS OFF THE MOTOR WHICH MEANS THEY HAD MOTOR ISSUES IF THE ENGINE EVER RAN. LIKE I SAID, NINE OR 10 MILES OFFSHORE, NO FISHING RODS ON THE BOAT. DISLIKE WHAT ARE YOU DOING OUT HERE? LOOKED KIND OF FUNNY. Reporter: CAPTAIN CHARLIE WAS AT LEAST 50 YARDS FROM THE MEN BUT TRY TO SPEAK WITH THEM. I COULD SEE THAT THEY WERE OKAY. THEY WERE SPANISH. I AM HALF CUBAN, SO I KNOW THEY WERE SPEAKING SPANISH. Reporter: BUT THERE ARE UNANSWERED QUESTIONS. THEY HAD COMMUNICATION EQUIPMENT THAT WAS MALFUNCTIONING. Reporter: AND CAPTAIN CHARLIE REALIZES HE MAY HAVE SAVED TWO LIVES. IF THERE CUBANS, THEY’RE GOING BACK. THAT’S THE WAY THAT ROLES NOW. HOPEFULLY, TWO HUMANS DIDN’T DIE. I JUST DID WHAT I WAS TAUGHT TO DO. DON’T APPROACH THE VESSEL THAT CLOSE AND CALL FOR HELP. TRAU CAPTAIN CHARLIE SAYS IT’S THE FIRST TIME IN HIS 10 YEARS AS A CHARTER BOAT CAPTAIN THAT HE HAS, BOARD — COME ACROSS A STRANDED VESSEL. HE WANTS TO KNOW WHY THOSE TWO MEN WERE UNABLE TO COMMUNICATE WITH ANYONE OVER THE PAST TWO DAYS.

    Boaters fight on the Choptank River

    August 13, 2019


    HE PLEADED GOOD TO THE VEHICLE HAR MANSLAUGHTER IN MAY. HIS BLOOD ALCOHOL CONTENT WAS MORE THAN TWICE THE LEGAL LIMIT. THIS WEEKEND, A FEW BOATERS WENT HEAD-TO-HEAD OVER SOME DISAGREEMENT. PEOPLE IN ANOTHER BOAT NEARBY TRIED TO YELL AND BREAK UP THE FIGHT, BUT THEY WEREN’T LISTENING. WITNESSES SAY THEY LOOKED LIKE THEY WERE INTOXICATED. IT SEEMED LIKE THEY COULD GO OVERBOARD AT ANY TIME. THE PERSON WHO POSTED THIS VIDEO TO FACEBOOK SAID THEY DID MORE THAN $3,000 IN DAMAGE TO THE BOAT THAT THEY RENTED FROM THE HYATT RESORT NEAR CAMBRIDGE.
