    Incredible find today, giving closure to grieving families, Video added

    RGECY and myself (David Toller of the 2009 Treasure Expo & Trade Show) wanted to help DNR in locating a boat that sank, taking the life of 3 people and nearly taking two more of the 6 on board.
    http://www.thesunnews.com/news/break...ry/825428.html
    Last Friday I read in the Myrtle Beach Sun News that the DNR had been diving to locate the boat from this tragic accident. When I read that they were unable to locate the boat, I got in touch with my treasure hunting partner RGECY and asked if he would like to shoot up here to Myrtle Beach and see what we can find with the Hummingbird Side Scanner.
    Robert agreed, and early this morning we were dropping the boat into the water. We began finding targets right away, that were interesting, but just not what we were looking for.
    Then, about 45 minutes into the search we located what we were certain was the target in question, the boat from the tragic accident. The target was obviously laying on the River Bed on it's side, giving off a very nice image.
    RGECY fealt like getting into the cold water (I don't do cold dives, ever) and investigated the site. After only a few minutes under water he surfaced and gave the THUMBS UP. Not only did he find what may be the wreck, but had the Hull Numbers from the boat.
    After a call to DNR, we were able to confirm through these numbers that this was definately the boat that took 3 lives so far, and still has one more (a 5 year old) hanging onto a thread at the hospital.
    We hope that locating this boat for DNR to complete their investigation will give a closure to the grieving families.

    That is a remarkable story. I wish to commend you for your succesful efforts. Hopefully the DNR can find funds for their own sonar in the future.

    You are part of those keeping the "human" in humankind. Great piece of work. And may God give comfort through your find to those who lost loved ones
    in the accident.

    Thanks for all the kind words.
    We were very happy that we had the capabilities to assist the DNR. The thing I keep coming back to is that I hope this will answer some questions for the families of those who passed, and give them closure.
