I realize that a lot of the contributors here aren't from the area, so I'm just passing on news of a bad few days in OC. Worst was a body being found yesterday on the beach at 2nd St.. between the surf and the boardwalk. A 30 YO women from Texas. Body is at the Medical Examiner in Baltimore. Not much other info was available. Someone fell (they say slipped) in a boating incident at the inlet, and broke their neck, and was transported to the Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore. Someone fell off of the rock jetty at the inlet and was caught up in the current. Two OC Beach Patrol members went in to assist. All 3 were rescued by the US Coast Guard. Someone fell off of a balcony at the Commander Hotel on 14th street. An employee at the Carousel was trapped in a trash compactor. And lastly, a mare at Assateague was found dead. Reports say from ingesting dog food. Phew ! Hope they have a better week.
