In 10 seconds, it Drifted 20 Feet


This summer, a party of four took a boat out on the  river at about 1:00 am. Once they had travelled a few miles,  they decided to take a midnight dip. All four of them! Before the boat was anchored.

As soon as the captain hit the water, he realized what they had done. By the time he began furiously swimming toward the boat, it had already drifted 20 feet. His lifeless body was found a week later floating near shore.

Two of the passengers treaded water for four hours. Some early morning fisherman rescued them. The Coast Guard located the other passenger. He did not survive.

The boat driftedEast downriver before it was rescued but the damage was done!

If you have spent any time in the water, be it a lake, river or ocean, you know what can happen, happens quickly.
