Per WECT: WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - A Wilmington man died in what officials called a “tragic accident” on a boat Monday near Trails End Park.

According to Clayton Ludwick with N.C. Wildlife, Brian Christopher Wren was fatally injured by equipment while he was a passenger on a boat.

Ludwick said another boat had gotten stuck on a sandbar between Carolina Beach Inlet and Trails End Park.

Wren was riding in a boat which was attempting to help free the struck vessel at the time of the accident.

Ludwick said no charges will be filed.


Sad news. I wonder what happened exactly.

Sounds like a parted line might have hit him, not knowing any other details. Rest in peace.

News said last night that a "piece of equipment" hit him. Maybe they popped a cleat off trying to tow the stuck boat. Terrible accident. The simplest-seeming things can often be pretty dangerous. Everybody stay safe out there.
