Four People Die In Boating Accident On Lake Lanier
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
Four people are dead after a fatal
boating accident on Lake Lanier in Georgia this past Friday. Officials say the bodies of
four people have been recovered from the lake after a mysterious boating
accident. Among the deceased were a 46-year-old Kentucky man and his wife,
a 45-year-old woman; along with another Kentucky couple, a 44-year old
man and woman. A witness told police she saw a boat speeding through the
water, becoming airborne, and crashing back into the water. The boat overturned
and the four passengers were missing. DNR rangers were able to recover
all the bodies in the days that followed. According to officials, the
bodies were recovered from waters over 90 feet deep. Officials said they
will need time to determine what caused the boat to overturn and how fast
the boat was traveling. The four Kentucky victims were at Lake Lanier
for a charity poker run when the fatal boating accident occurred.
