‘Good Samaritan’ shoots and kills drowning man he was trying to rescue

In one of the most bizarre and tragic rescues ever, a 'Good Samaritan' fished a drowning man out of the water only to shoot him dead minutes afterwards.

Last week, an unidentified sailor, 74 helped 29-year-old Nathan Drew Morgan out of the treacherous Lake Keowee in South Carolina.

However far from being grateful, Morgan reportedly became extremely aggressive as soon as he was on the boat.

Morgan had been jet skiing with a female friend but had fallen off without his life jacket and was in danger of going under.

After the eventual gunman steered his boat over to him and attempted to bring him aboard, Morgan became aggressive and threatening.

Police attest that at this point he assaulted both the older man and his female companion on their boat.

As a result, the man pushed him off the boat and opened fire when he attempted to get back on.

The Oconee County Coroner’s Office later rule that Morgan had been fatally shot in the chest.

He is survived by his 10-year-old son.

Since the strange and tragic incident, locals and residents have been trying to get their head around what happened.

A resident named Brandon Thomas told local news channel WSPA-TV: "Certainly have never seen anything like that or heard anything like that.

“That’s very surprising, especially the area it was in.

“That’s crazy. Definitely unexpected out here, for sure.”

Meanwhile others have said they are upset that local police are not pressing charges against the man.

One friend, named Kesslin Cole took to social media and said: "This Amazing man had a son who lost his Best friend & Drew's parents will never see their son again…

"Many people throughout the community lost a very special friend.

This is all we get…You call this JUSTICE. This is far from that."
