Boat capsizes

Rough conditions led to a boating mishap near the Dreher Shoals Dam (Lake Murray Dam) on Saturday. Around 10:30 am a boat capsized near the intake towers depositing two occupants into the waters. Nearby boaters responded by removing the unfortunate duo from harm’s way and bringing them to the shore. Lexington County dispatched fire and emergency medical personnel to the scene. SC Dept. of Natural Resources reported that there were no injuries as a result of the accident or the rescue attempt. 

Sea Tow was able to remove the capsized boat from the water.
