The Great Lakes Dredging and Dock Company (GLDD) survey boat Pearl River, in coordination with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineering and Southern Dredging, located a capsized workboat Sunday morning on the Cooper River in Charleston Harbor, the U.S. Coast Guard reports. 

The Coast Guard and port partners are monitoring the salvage efforts for Miss Anne, a steel 25-foot commercial workboat, which capsized and sank on the Cooper River near Shipyard Creek at approximately 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 17,” according to an official release.

At the time of the incident, Miss Anne was operating as a workboat re-positioning equipment for the Dredge Brunswick and had three crew-members on board. All crew-members were recovered safely with no reports of injuries or pollution.

Following the incident, the specific location of the sunken vessel was unknown and the Coast Guard Captain of the Port (COTP) Charleston established a safety zone for the adjacent waterway.

Coast Guard helicopters and boats, along with Southern Dredging, Great Lakes Dredging and the Charleston County Sheriff’s boats were actively involved in the search for the sunken vessel.

The cause of the vessel capsizing is under investigation.
