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.
The Miracle League of Wilmington will soon boast an open and handicapped-accessible field and playground. This weekend, members unveiled the new recreational facility – at 5510 Olsen Park Lane in Wilmington. That’s according to WWAY TV3.
This field, unlike other ball fields, is not made out of dirt. Instead, builders used materials that allow anyone with special needs, including wounded warriors and seniors, to access the park.
Angela Blanton says she is happy her two special needs daughters now have a comfortable place to play.
