Md. Boaters Rescued During Sandy Would Go Again

One of the men told officers that firefighters save people everyday, and didn't seem to care he risked lives when his homemade boat fell victim to the raging river during a hurricane.


Kingsbury asked a trooper to go back to the river to look for the cooler, which held his cellphone.

The trooper "informed him that due to the raging waters and the danger they pose to anyone that ventures near them, no attempt would be made to locate his cooler."

A trooper told Kingsbury's wife to notify the sheriff's office if the men attempted to make the trip again, and the trooper "believes they will," the report stated.

"Deputies will respond down to the ramp and not allow them to enter the raging waters," the report stated.
