The Coast Guard and Navy have rescued four divers who were reported missing off the coast of the Carolinas.
The Coast Guard and Navy rescued four divers who went missing on Sunday off the coast of Bermuda, according to officials.
The divers were rescued about 46 miles (74 kilometers) southeast of North Carolina’s Cape Fear River, as reported by the U.S. Coast Guard Mid-Atlantic on social media.
The four men were reported missing after they failed to return from a pleasure craft called Big Bill’s.
The Coast Guard stated in a news release on Sunday that the ship was located roughly 50 miles (80 kilometers) south of Cape Fear, North Carolina, and approximately 63 miles (1001 km) east of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
The “Graveyard of the Atlantic” is a well-known area for divers, known for its numerous shipwrecks off the coasts of both states.
The divers were searched for by the Coast Guard, which dispatched several aircraft and boats.
