Default 1 Dead in Lake Travis Accident

Here is link to story. This story raises a lot of questions for me. PWC out after dark, no life jackets on, breath smelled like alcohol. In the video they show a ski boat being pulled out so maybe that is reason for no life jackets and being out after sunset.

Here is another link that has a little more detail & some corrections to the story. Not sure who this Wade guy is but I am guessing he was misquoted about only body recovered in 30 years by divers. I can think of at least 3 in the last couple of years.
