Boating safety video released

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department has released a sobering video aimed at motivating teens and young adults to follow simple safety guidelines while boating.

It debuts in the wake of an unusually high number of drownings and fatal boating accidents across the state in recent weeks. The video, ‘Never Happens: True Stories From Texas Boaters and Swimmers,’ is a compelling reminder to be safe on the water by wearing a life jacket, learning to swim and closely supervising children to prevent drowning. For more details on how to view this video, see the June 5 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
