Tybee Island Vehicles Stuck in Marsh

Tybee Island, Ga. – (June 3, 2019) While on duty Friday afternoon, a Beach Patrol ATV became stuck in the marsh east of Lazaretto Creek. Attempts to recover the vehicle resulted in additional equipment becoming stuck. Outside agencies, including Chatham Emergency Management Agency, Georgia Department of Natural Resources and the U.S. Coast Guard were contacted to advise and assist with the recovery process, which was complicated by darkness and high tides. One vehicle has been successfully recovered and the others have been secured against environmental contamination while Tybee Island works with Ga DNR to facilitate a plan for removal. The City of Tybee Island is conducting an internal investigation of the incident.
