Default Another Accident, with death...

2am saturday night a guy from warrensburg had a boating accident ( no cigarette boats ). His ski tower hit a tall dock and it collapsed on him. Then the boat swerved into land 12feet over a retaining wall.

Johnny, Did he die ?? They were saying critical yesterday. I was up and out on my deck that night. We heard the firehouse siren and wondered what was happening. Didnt see a big commotion or here anything out on the water. The accident happened no more than 1500 feet north of my house !!

Where are you getting that he died? All the news (radio-papers) including the Albany paper are saying he's is the hospital in Albany.

I spoke today with an extremely close friend of mine who is high ranking member of the Bolton Fire Department of which I am a past member. He drove the ambulance and said that the kid did die. Also, lots of beer bottles etc floating in the water and on the shore.

All of the public information I have seen has not confirmed the death though.

I can't picture how the tower could hit a dock?

Hit a diving board that stuck out from the dock IOW, he was almost driving on the shore. IIRC, that board and the dock it was on are not very far out into the water.
