Man drowns in Great Pee Dee River

MARLBORO COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - A 70-year-old man has died after an apparent drowning, said Tim Brown, Marlboro County coroner.

Bobby Young, 70, of Bennettsville, died Monday after a boat turned over in the Great Pee Dee River.

Divers with SCDNR spent Monday night trying to recover the boat.

Another person was with Young during the boating accident. The person has been taken to hospital due to being exposed to the water for a long time following the accident, said Brown.

No autopsy will take place, said Brown.
