OREGON INLET, N.C. (WAVY) — The Coast Guard helped a vessel after a wave came over its bow early Wednesday morning, smashing through the windshield.

Boaters on the “Carolina Girl” called for help around 6:30 a.m. 

A Coast Guard crew was already out and able to get to the boat within minutes. The crew determined the boat still had power, and escorted it back to Wanchese Harbor.

Paramedics met the boat at the marina to treat at least one person who was hurt during the incident.
