TYBEE ISLAND, GA (WTOC) -
The Tradewinds Casino Cruise ship is still stuck on a sandbar off Tybee Island.
Savannah's newest casino ship set sail on its maiden voyage Tuesday evening and ran aground on a sandbar while heading back to dock. A distress call went out to the Coast Guard shortly before midnight.
The Coast Guard says they did not make an attempt to move the ship at high tide overnight as planned. Coast Guard officials tell WTOC that a formal request had to be made from the owners of the Tradewinds ship, and that was not done in time.
Officials now say if all the proper paperwork is filed, they will attempt to move the ship at high tide later Thursday afternoon.
The Coast Guard did rescue all of the passengers safely off the vessel Wednesday evening. Some of those passengers spoke out about the experience.
"It wasn't very good conditions, you couldn't sleep. Hot in one room, cold in the next room, it was just very bad conditions," said Randy Hill, passenger.
WTOC will continue to follow this story throughout the day and bring you the latest updates as they happen.
