No one hurt after boat runs onto sandbar in St. Augustine Inlet

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. — The St. Johns County Fire and Rescue said a boat got stuck on a sand bar in the St. Augustine inlet Thursday afternoon. 

Lisa Myers lives right off the shore and from her balcony she saw the boat when it was stuck. 

She says she called 911 and St. John’s County Fire and Rescue, and St. Augustine Fire and Rescue arrived shortly after to help escort the boat to safety.

“It was pretty dangerous we could almost see the bottom of the boat it was listing back-and-forth with the waves hitting it. I was just so glad when they got him off that they sailed in and hopefully they can spend the night in St. Augustine and have a good night’s sleep,” Myers said. 

St. John’s County Fire and Rescue confirmed no one was hurt in the accident.
