ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP/WBOC)- Maryland's governor plans to honor a waterman for rescuing 23 people, including a group of schoolchildren on a field trip, from a boat that sank in the Chesapeake Bay.
    
Matthew A. Clark, a spokesman for Gov. Larry Hogan, said Thursday the governor plans to honor the "life-saving" actions of Jeremy Shockley of Toddville with a citation.
    
Clark says Shockley's "quick response helped to avert what could have been a terrible tragedy."
    
Everyone on board was rescued after the 40-foot Chesapeake Bay Foundation vessel hit a submerged object and sank in water about 10 feet deep off of Bloodsworth Island on Wednesday. The Coast Guard says the boat was in a prohibited area.
    
A Coast Guard investigation may determine just what the vessel hit.
