It was just after 9 AM Tuesday morning when the Bald Head Island Ferry "Adventure" traveling to Bald Head Island from Southport ran aground near Battery Island.
The impact of the grounding injured thirteen people – one potentially seriously. That person was taken to New Hanover Regional Medical Center. Eleven others went to nearby Dosher Hospital in Southport for treatment.
WWAY’s Sarah Murphy was on the scene and spoke to some deeply-shaken passengers.
