Re: Prison Inmates Rescue Boaters

"Alcohol is believed to have played a role in the incident..."

"Authorities believe the boat may have been stolen, because all identifying numbers had been removed from both the hull and engine when it was recovered."

How ironic is that? Did the thieves get rescued by the inmates?

Yep! And hopefully the rescued will become the rescuers' cellmates
