CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) – The Coast Guard says it rescued two men and two others swam to an island after their boat capsized near the entrance to Charleston Harbor.
A Coast Guard news release says the 25-foot boat capsized around 3:18 p.m. Saturday because of the surf. All four people aboard had life jackets on.
The Coast Guard responded and rescued two men. The other two men swam to shore on Morris Island and were picked up by a Good Samaritan.
One man was treated for a stingray sting.

Coast Guard Lt. Kristi Nadler credited the life jackets with helping the men survive.
