Boating Accident Leaves One Dead

A boat crashed near Pilottown, killing one and injuring another. The injured were taken via helicopter to New Orleans for medical treatment and the survivor’s condition is critical.

As the summer months approach and the heat intensifies in Louisiana, many people will be taking their boats on the water to beat the heat. While boats are a great source of entertainment and family fun, they can also be the source of devastating accidents.

By law, boat owners and boat operators have to exercise extreme care to ensure that passengers riding the boat, swimmers, and anyone else in the waters surrounding the boat, or anyone in other boats or on nearby piers do not get injured or killed due to a boating accident.
