Man missing after canoe accident in Hull
By John R. Ellement, Globe Staff February 17, 2006
One man was rescued and another is missing after a tragic boating trip off Hull early this morning.
The Coast Guard has a rescue boat crew searching the area off Crescent Beach for Steven Coble, 26, of Hull.
The drama began about 2:30 a.m. this morning when the Coast Guard was notified that a man was stuck on the breakwall off of Crescent Beach. Brad Turner, 19, of Rockland was pulled off the wall.
Turner told the Coast Guard he and his cousin, Coble, had been in a 10-foot canoe when the vessel capsized sending both men into the water between 11 p.m. and 12:30 a.m. Turner said he was able to swim to the breakwater.
When he got to the breakwater, Turner told authorities, "he heard him (Coble) screaming a few times, but that was it," said Coast Guard spokesman Scott Carr. The water temperature is believed to be 39.7 degrees
