The body of a Pembroke man was recovered from the Savannah River on Monday afternoon, according to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.
DNR law-enforcement rangers recovered the body of Austin T. Sneed, 27, from the river’s South Channel at about 1:30 p.m., the agency announced in a news release.
Chatham County Aviation spotted him and directed the rangers to the recovery location.
The search began Saturday morning, when law enforcement received a call that Sneed’s boat had struck the Fort Pulaski Bridge. He was ejected into the river and did not resurface, DNR said.
Personnel from the U.S. Coast Guard, Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department Marine Patrol and Chatham County Aviation Unit, along with the DNR rangers, participated in the search.
