Boat stranded on rock ledge in Fort Edward

It wasn’t the way a boating trip on the Hudson River was supposed to end. 

The sheriff’s office was called Tuesday morning to a boating accident on the Hudson River. A 30-foot boat was heading north near Lock 6 in Fort Edward when the operator made a wrong turn and ended up on a rock ledge.

Six people from out of the area were aboard.  Two of them were hurt, but not seriously.

The sheriff’s office says a 67-year-old man from California was operating the boat. He was traveling with a group of vessels, misjudged the entrance to the lock, and drove his boat onto a large rocky shole.
