Default Lake Texoma Boat Wreck

Jeff Bain died last sunday morning after he had lost direction. Jeff had a problem with one of his eyes. The other eye he had lost his contact. Jeff had dinner at the island at Lowes saturday night, with one of my other buddies JV. JV had just put his boat on the boat [email protected] Creek, when a striper guide came and said some one hit the rocks. JV went over there and said it took him a while to find him, IT WAS VERY DARK. JV sat on the rocks holding Jeff for one hour. The Paramedics were across the cove in the parking lot and could of came over there. JV called them repeatedly for an hour telling them to get in the striper guides boat with a stretcher. AN HOUR AFTER THE FACT THEY DID! I GUESS WHEN YOU ARE HURT YOU ARE SUPPOSE TO GET ON SKIS AND TAKE YOURSELF TO THE EMS. SO WHAT WOULD YOUR MINDSET BE TO SET WITH SOME1 FOR AN HOUR WITH THE EMS RITE THERE AND THEY SAY BRING THEM TO ME? I tried to retrieve the boat last sunday when i got [email protected] The lake patrol told me that he had been drinking they know this because they seen a ice chest with beer in it. I would consider he was drunk if I seen a single beer can,WOULDNT YOU. I GAVE THE EULOGY AT THE FUNERAL, ALSO WAS A PALLBEARER at the funeral. This guy had a boat slip between me and my [email protected] Creek. I was suppose to be with Jeff saturday nite. He was a Gentleman and would do anything for a stranger. I sold him that boat it was old and heavy, and would not run 65. He lost direction it was very dark his daughter told me at the funeral on wednesday. A GREAT GUY! THAT WILL BE MISSED FOR A LONG TIME. ALSO THEY WOULDNT MEDIFLITE SAID HE NEEDED TO BE STABLE. IF YOU GET HURT AT TEXOMA, PRAY YOUR ON THE TEXAS SIDE. They tookj him to Madill,ok hospital. The same1 that sent my mom home with a broke back when I was a kid. Told her she was ok, that she would just be sore. God Bless Jeff and his Family.
