GENERAL INTEREST
For reasons that remain unclear, a local police officer drove a beach patrol ATV into a marsh on Tybee Island, Georgia, on May 31, where it became stuck in the mud.?? Officials with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources say the officer then used a City of Tybee pickup truck to try to free the ATV, but the truck also became stuck.?? City workers next attempted to pull both vehicles out using two backhoes, which also succumbed to the marsh.?? An excavator was finally able to free one of the backhoes from the muck, but the Coastal Resources Division of the DNR reported to WSAV that it will likely take a barge and crane to extricate the other three vehicles.?? Tybee city officials are conducting an investigation. [WSAV, 6/3/2019]
