Cobb Island Volunteer Fire & EMS ~ Charles County ~ Maryland
Firefighter Christopher A. Staley was attempting to rescue a friend who was drowning in the Wicomico River near the Wicomico Shores pier. Firefighter Staley swam out and was able to reach his friend, but the rough water and strong currents of the Wicomico River kept pulling both men under. Tragically, both Firefighter Staley and his friend drown.
