Sea Isle City, NJ Charter Boat Nearly Sinks with More Than 20 People Aboard
More than 20 people had to be rescued from a popular Sea Isle City charter boat early Monday night after it reportedly began to sink.

The vessel reportedly hit the Townsends Inlet Bridge. Shortly after, water began leaking into the boat.

On its official Facebook page, Starfish Boats thanked followers for their concern, a writes, "We are hopeful however the boat does have damage and will be inoperable for some time."
