Man Saves Women from Waccamaw River
Recently, two women (Haley Morris and Kate Henry) were driving when their SUV drove off of the road and into the Waccamaw River near Wacca Wache Marina due to dark and foggy conditions. Thankfully, a man named D.J. Nance was fishing and witnessed the accident. He responded quickly and pulled both women out of the sinking vehicle to safety. Both women are very thankful for Nance's bravery and now call him their own personal hero.
Pregnant Woman from Myrtle Beach Goes Viral
April the giraffe's pregnancy has been all over the news and social media as of late, and one Myrtle Beach resident decided to take advantage of that. Erin Dietrich, who has since given birth, decided to parody the giraffe's pregnancy by wearing a giraffe mask and walking around her house, all while showing off her baby bump. This caught the attention of many news outlets and people on social media. Since the first video, Dietrich also posted another video where she went live from her hospital room waiting to give birth while wearing the giraffe mask.
