Coast Guard Sector Charleston received a report at 7:16 p.m. from a commercial salvage company that said two people on a jet ski were stranded on Morris Island, South Carolina, according to a USCG release.
The captain of the salvage company said he couldn’t assist the jet skiers due to unsafe weather conditions.
