    Yet one more reason to never go lake boating! Damn I'm glad I live where we have real water....

    This Summer while they had that flood gate open they have now closed off the lake about a mile or so from the dam. Up to this accident they never closed any part of the lake when they had only 1 flood gate open

    My main boating body of water is between two big hydro dams. So this is always on my mind. At least my visual nightmare has another visual comfort, our marker buoys support a rescue net across the river length and set up well away from the actual dam.

    He was stripped naked by the water.

    He wound up in the river below the dam, was uninjured, and was stark naked when the water pulled all of his clothes off. His girlfriend was lifted to safety.

    I live about 1/2 mile above the dam, and cross below it everyday. Tom Miller Dam is on Lake Austin Blvd. Do a Google maps, aerial view to get a lay of the land. It is a full 60 foot drop.

    There was a James Bond? movie that had a boat go over the dam in a crash scene. I think it was a Glastron. I don't remember which movie.
