At least four other passengers suffered minor injuries and one other person was reported airlifted by a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter. The coroner's office has not released any further details, including the name of the fifth victim, WSAV reported. Authorities said one of the boats was carrying six people and the other had three aboard when they collided around 10:30 a.m. on the Wilmington River. WSAV also reported that a 45-year-old Savannah man was arrested and faces a boating under the influence charge. The incident is the second involving a boat and serious injuries on the Wilmington River this month.
