MT. PLEASANT, SC - A shrimp boat is taking on water in Shem Creek in Mount Pleasant, according to the Coast Guard.

Another vessel called the Coast Guard, saying that a boat is taking on water that is tied up at Magwood Dock. People onboard the vessel say no one was on the shrimp boat but someone jumped on board to help out.

The North Charleston and Mount Pleasant Fire Departments brought pumps to the scene and are taking water out of the boat. The pumps will be out all night.

The owner of the boat is organizing divers to go down Tuesday morning to figure out the source of the leak.

No one was on board the ship at the time and no one was hurt.
