After crashing into the jetties at Jekyll Creek, which is located to the south of Brunswick, a boat of 23 feet in length was responsible for the death of one person and the rescue of two others, as reported by the Coast Guard. Kathy Holmes, who was fifty years old and originated from St. Simons Island, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident, according to Christopher Evanson, a spokesperson for the United States Coast Guard.
