MONCKS CORNER, S.C. (AP) - Berkeley County authorities say a Goose Creek man has died after a boating accident on the Cooper River.

Coroner Bill Salisbury said in a news release Monday that the victim was 21-year-old Hunter Morris. Salisbury says the death has been ruled an accidental drowning.

Divers found Morris’ body around 5:45 p.m. Sunday. That was about three hours after they began searching at the Pimlico boat landing where an overturned boat was found.

Salisbury said a fisherman rescued a female from the water where the 15-foot aluminum boat had overturned. She was taken to a hospital. There was no word on her condition.
