Former President George H.W. Bush walked away unhurt after his boat ran aground on a beach near his home in Maine. The former president's fishing boat ended up on the sand on Monday after drifting into thick fog. Bush and some family members were on board at the time, but everyone was OK.

The boat turned into a curiosity for tourists as it sat stranded at low tide.

"We were all going to go for a whale watch, but this tops that," said tourist Mike Hilton.

Eventually, the former president's staff was able to move the boat back to its dock in Kennebunkport.
