Marshfield Fire Chief Kevin Robinson says a weekend boating accident which has rocked the community reinforces the need for boating safety classes and life preservers.
Authorities are still trying to locate the body of 23-year-old Steven “Zac” Woods, who went missing Saturday after he and another boater were ejected from a boat near the Brant Rock section of Marshfield. Justin McDonald, the operator was rescued by a kayaker, but Woods was not found.
Friends and family are trying to come to terms with the fate of the missing boater, who is feared dead.
McDonald is facing a charge of operating a boat while under the influence, after admitting to police on Saturday, that he was “buzzed,” but not drunk while returning from the spit to Green Harbor on Saturday.
