ERIE COUNTY, Ohio (WOIO) - One person has died after two boats crashed near the Cranberry Creek Marina in Huron around 9 p.m. Tuesday, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.

Neighbors around the marina said the water was calm Sunday night. They also shared their reaction about the news.

“Oh it’s, I called three or four buddies already this morning. You okay? It wasn’t you, it wasn’t you,” said Jeff Wilson.

Two people were rescued and one person remains missing.

Of the two people rescued, both are being treated at a local hospital for hypothermia and one also suffered a back injury.

The search resumed early Wednesday for the missing boater but was suspended around 9:30 a.m. The search was then called off later in that morning.

No information on the missing person has been released.
