Anglers okay after mishap

Earlier this morning Tom Graziano posted an image to this blog showing his boat under tow by a cabin cruiser.

Graziano was behind the wheel when his boat struck a submerged object. He and co-angler Gus Kneidinger went overboard as a result. The emergency stop switch disabled the ignition to the outboard and the personal flotation devices worn by both anglers inflated upon impact.

Neither angler suffered injuries serious enough to require immediate medical treatment. The mishap occurred on the James River near the confluence of the Chickahominy River.
