Coast Guard Resumes Search

The Coast Guard resumed the search for a missing boater on the frigid waters of the Chesapeake Bay. A boat capsized last weekend near the Bay Bridge. Authorities say a strong gust of wind blowing against a tightened sail helped capsize the boat. So far, the body of 25-year-old Tyler Cordrey of Eden, Maryland, still has not been found. The only confirmed survivor is 25-year-old Taylor Rogers of Salisbury. She was treated for hypothermia after the accident and is now out of the hospital. Another person on the boat, a 46-year-old man from Laurel, was also rescued but later died. Maryland officials say it’s been a bad year for boating accidents. More than 20 people have died statewide.
