ATLANTIC BEACH, NC (WNCT) – A finger dock at Capt. Stacy Fishing Center gave way when several people boarded the charter boat Captain Stacy Sunday morning.
WNCT’s Adrianna Hargrove reports that the incident happened around 6:30 a.m. at the store at 505 Atlantic Beach Causeway.
Atlantic Beach Police Chief Jeff Harvey said eight to 10 people fell into the water after the dock gave way.
Four people were taken to Carteret Health Care in Morehead City with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. The others refused medical attention, according to Atlantic Beach deputy chief/firefighter Casey Arthur.
Company officials marked the area for repairs, a picture taken by Harvey showed. It was unclear if this disrupted regularly scheduled tours on the charter boat.
Mutual aid came from the Morehead City Fire Department, Beaufort Fire Department and Pine Knoll Shores Fire Department.
