A 74-year-old boater from South Carolina will not be prosecuted for the shooting death of a 29-year-old jet skier he rescued from an accident on Lake Keowee, Your Content has learned.

Law enforcement officials have deemed the incident a case of self-defense, following a series of unusual events.

The tragic incident occurred last Tuesday when Nathan Drew Morgan, 29, fell into distress while riding a jet ski with a female companion.

The elderly couple, whose identities have not been disclosed, came across Morgan and swiftly pulled them to safety onto their pontoon boat.

However, the situation took a turn for the worse as Morgan became increasingly confrontational and hostile towards the older couple and the woman.

Feeling threatened, the 74-year-old boater made the difficult decision to defend himself and those onboard by firing a fatal shot at Morgan.

Tragically, Morgan succumbed to his injuries on the boat before they could reach the shore. He leaves behind a young child, and his family has yet to publicly respond to the decision made by the sheriff’s office.

The incident has raised questions about the limits of self-defense in such circumstances, prompting a deeper examination of the events that unfolded on that fateful day on the water, according to NBC News.
