Ferry rescues Couple in Big Foot Slough

John and Renee Hoffman of Black Mountain were sailing in Big Foot Slough on September 26 2013 when their boat capsized. Luckily, they were wearing their floatation devices.

After forty-five minutes in the water, they were rescued by a ferry run by Capt. Steven Goodwin, whose crew launched a sixteen foot rescue boat.

Glenn Salter and Daniel Smith pulled the Hoffmans from Pamlico Sound.
