A man was rescued this morning from a boat after it struck the south jetties in Charleston Harbor, according to U.S. Coast Guard officials. The 21-foot, center-console vessel struck the jetties around 8:45 a.m., officials said. Only one person was on board and he was picked up by rescue workers. The man had a small gash on his head and is receiving medical attention, officials said. The boat remains on the jetties and it’s the owner’s responsibility to have it removed, according to authorities. The U.S. Coast Guard, Charleston County Rescue Squad and the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office performed the rescue.
