Potomac Rescue - October 29, 2011, 11:20 PM

This was one of the guys fishing the tournament I would have been doing if the weather wasn't crappy. His outboard quit on him and 2-3ft waves crashed over the bow and eventually swamped it. He phoned the other club members fishing the tournament and they went searching for him. They ended up calling 911 after not being able to locate him. The boat was recovered.

Man Rescued After Boat Capsizes | NBC Washington

An unidentified man was pulled out of the Potomac River near Quantico Saturday after the fishing boat he was aboard capsized Saturday morning.
The Coast Guard received a call from a member of Prince William County's emergency dispatch reporting a man in the river at 9:45 a.m. A 25-foot rescue boat was launched by the Coast Guard, while Charles County Fire and Rescue launched a rescue boatcrew of their own.
The Charles County crew reached the man first and delivered him to emergency personnel waiting onshore. His medical condition is unknown at this time.
