The storm that rolled across the Charleston area early Sunday afternoon also hit Lake Marion were a boat with six people on board began taking on water.

Eventually that boat began to sink and the passengers attempted to swim to shore — none had life preservers and 19 year old Robert Northen drowned.

ABC News 4 writes, "Witnesses at the boat landing, who knew the group, say Daniels died while saving a double amputee passenger."

The station's full report is one of the better I've seen, read it over here.
