OCEAN CITY – Ocean City Beach Patrol lifeguards rescued a couple and their dog on Monday afternoon (July 8) from a boat grounded in Corson’s Inlet.

The guards responded to a 3:58 p.m. call and launched personal watercraft (PWC) from both the 59th Street and 34th Street OCBP stations. While en route to the scene, they received an update that the boat was taking on water.

They located a pontoon boat grounded on a shoal about 75 yards off the beach on the Ocean City side of the inlet in a heavy fog. The first PWC transported one person and one dog to the boat ramp at Corson’s Inlet State Park. The second PWC transported the second person.

Ocean City Beach Patrol and Ocean City Fire Department emergency medical personnel responded by land, but neither the two people nor their dog required any treatment.

Sea Tow was dispatched to retrieve the pontoon boat.
