Safety whistles handed out to start Safe Boating Week

  • Monday, May 19, 2014

David Jones wearing his best friend’s pirate outfit, talks with Reed Hammond, seated, of Georgetown about the whistles being handed out and how having a whistle might have saved his best friend’s life. His firend, Keith Edward Sullivan of Emerald Isle, North Carolina, drowned in the Sampit River off of Front Street earlier this year. Sullivan’s sisters, Kelly Wyatt and Kim Oestereich, arrange the table with whistles and photos of their brother. The family handed out whistles free of charge to boaters Saturday, behind the Georgetown Clocktower on the Harborwalk. A.M. Sheehan/South Strand News
