Default MS River Danger

I am not sure of all the details but was told that Todd Macko and his brother Michael ran into a rock dyke near Natchez on the MS river. Heard the boat sank after the motor caught on fire and that their was maybe some injures. I pray everyone is OK. Can anyone confirm this or know anymore details?????

Yes you heard correctly. Everyone was recovered safely with no serious injuries. I believe a broken collarbone was mentioned but I haven't heard anything else. The boat was recovered too.

That's all true. Details are plentiful on the MS Alligator FB group page. Boat started taking on water, motor caught fire. All at night. Bad deal and lucky it didn't turn out worse. After having been 90% submerged, they got the boat back to the surface and brought back out. All electronics are shot, hull not damaged too bad, per the guy who built it in Long Beach.
