Beaufort, South Carolina – This is Beaufort’s sea border, but not everyone has a boat to cross it.
For the uninitiated, Beaufort is a coastal region in South Carolina that has been a breeding ground for many invasive species.
In 2017, an outbreak of the Beaufin virus spread across the region.
It’s one of the worst-hit states, and some people are struggling to survive.
On the day of the outbreak, hundreds of people were still out in the water trying to cross in their boats.
And that was only the beginning.
On Sunday, South Carver County Sheriff’s deputies spotted two women on the water, with their heads and necks in the sea.
They took them into custody, and were arrested.
They’ve been charged with indecent exposure, which carries a possible three-year jail sentence.
If convicted, they could face up to 10 years in prison and a $5,000 fine.
