Family's Powerboat Plows into a Large Wake Injuring 7 Boaters *video*

Quote:
A boat cam video has captured the moment a family day out on the water turned to tragedy in a horrific boating crash.

The footage, taken at Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri last Friday, shows the passengers being thrown back-and-forth like rag dolls after the family's powerboat plows into a large wake at high speed.

At the beginning of the video, two female boaters, presumably mother and daughter, are seen dressed in bright coloured bikinis and sunglasses, smiling and posing, clearly aware of the camera's presence.

The other five boaters - four men and another, more demurely dressed, woman - are equally enjoying their day on the water.

But the fun-filled atmosphere soon turns to chaos when the vessel - a Fountain powerboat - hits the large wake of another boat passing by, and the unnamed family comes to blows on the waterway.

The boat's driver, who was speeding along the popular lake, loses control and the vessel starts violently rocking from side-to-side.

The passengers are seen slamming around the boat's interior like dolls during the surprise crash.

The driver and the bikini-clad daughter are flung to opposite ends of the vessel in what look like painful projections.

All seven boaters were injured in the incident.

Five were taken to a nearby hospital to be treated for minor to moderate injuries.

The Missouri reservoir is a popular place for boaters and vacationing families but local authorities say boating accidents are common.

They have warned families to take special care on the lake over the Labor Day weekend when two people died and 10 people were injured last year.

None of them looked very happy before the crash, and U bet they weren't happy puppies afterwards.

A mouth full of broken teeth and a belly full of bust ribs is guaranteed to ruin anybody's day.

The guy at the helm needs to learn a little bit about watching for waves and wakes, as it is like hitting concrete at that sort of speed.

Bizarre Speedboat Accident at Lake of the Ozarks Caught on Videotape

I just noticed this on the news a few minutes ago and uploaded it with story and video as found. Personally, I find this speedboat pilot to be a careless and irresponsible person who should have his boat impounded until he gets some safety training.

Bizarre speedboat accident at Lake of the Ozarks caught on videotape

By: Pete Thomas, GrindTV.com

Seven boaters were injured and five were hospitalized with minor to moderate injuries as a result of a bizarre accident--which was caught on videotape--Friday on Missouri's Lake of the Ozarks. Viewers can fast-forward to the 1:16 mark of the first video, which is a news compilation by Lake TV, or find just the incident in the second video, which borrows Lake TV footage. Viewers should note that the footage shows the extremely violent nature of an accident that occurred when the powerboat Fountain encountered wakes caused by another boat.



As viewers can see, none of the passengers was wearing a life jacket or any kind of protective gear, while clearly traveling at high speed. Both videos are making the rounds on Facebook, where one person astutely commented:

"A reminder as to why it's best to leave driving a speedboat REALLY fast to professional drivers in safety restraint systems."

Ahh Lake of the Ozarks is a beautiful place...

O/T- They're damn lucky. And damn stupid. Next time you do something dumb like this at least be considerate enough to wear a life vest. It'll make recovering your body much easier.
