Police looking for more information on a lifeguard hit by a boat

Carolina Beach Police are asking for your help. On July 4th, Carolina Beach lifeguard, Daniel Anderson, was hit by the propeller of a boat while making a rescue. Four months later, North Carolina Wildlife has closed the investigation with no leads. Now Carolina Beach Police want to reopen the case to reach closure for Anderson and his family. "At this time we don't plan on taking charges out on anyone, we talked to the victim about it, and he is ok about it. We want to put some closure to this, and find out what happened," said William Younginer, Carolina Beach Police Chief. "Naturally, if anyone has information about this we would like for them to come forward, and report to the Carolina Beach Police Department," said Anderson. Police said the boat was medium to large in size, and may have had two engines. Anyone with information is asked to call the Carolina Beach Police Department at 910-458-2540.

It is very possible that whoever hit the lifeguard did not even know it.

wow im sorry to hear this

wow im sorry to hear this ,my sympathy to the man for risking his life to save ones life, although i was at freeman park on the 4th camping out, i do not own a boat ,someone got hit by a jet skier there earlier , it was really crowded elbow to elbow with tents and people that day ,they neede more life guards and marine patrol , coast guard out that day in the water ,freeman park was well patroled we saw the patrol zoom by us on 4 whellers and trucks a few times that day.whomever done this should have respect it could be them one day needing a rescue ,stand up be a man admit you had an accident right your wrongs with your self and society the longer it takes the authorites and the more money used by the state to make an arrest the stiffer the penalty, they are giving you a chance to come foward, evevryone makes mistakes no one is perfect ,live and learn
