Victims names still unknown in fatal boat wreck

Posted: Updated:

The names of two people found dead near a boat yard on Skidaway Island may be released sometime Friday. 

Investigators say their bodies were discovered Thursday after a deadly boat accident on Skidaway Island. 

DNR rangers say a 17-foot Carolina skiff hit a dock walkway and two men suffered severe head trauma. 

Savannah police waited for the tide to come in so they could dock the boat and remove the bodies. 

The Coast Guard first got reports that two men had gone missing after leaving for a fishing trip the night before.
