BOATING ACCIDENT DEATHS

So far nothing - there has been no action taken by either the USCG, FWC, or the County Commission of Miami-Dade County, Florida regarding the boating accidents this year. 

Here is a summary:

August 03, 2014 - jet ski crash, result 1 death.

July 04, 2014 - three boat crash, result 4 deaths and injured persons.

May 05, 2014 - assisting grounded boat with its engines running running, result 1 death.

May 26, 2014 - boat crashed into anchored boat, result 1 death.

Total:  7 deaths.

According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC) in 2013 there were 104 boating accidents resulting in 4 deaths and 50 injuries. 

According to the FWC spokesman Jorge Pino boating accidents occur due to personal responsibility, whether it involves alcohol or drug consumption, speed or just carelessness.  This is indeed very true and yet so far nothing has been done by any Authority involved in safe boating.

Good Watch.
