Boating Accidents on the Rise

During the warmer months of summer people go to enjoy the outdoors. People make use of recreational waterways and parks that we have in plenty in the State of Georgia. Unfortunately, with this uptick in activities the number of accidents also tends to rise.

Such is the case where a Georgia man is dead after his boat capsized near Williamson Island, located in coastal Georgia. According to the Metropolitan Police department, a man from Savannah in his early 50’s was pronounced dead at the scene of where his boat overturned on the Wassaw Sound.

The man was identified by his wife, but officials are not yet releasing his identity. The accident is currently under investigation by law enforcement and by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.
