Safety first on the water

May 29, 2006

Albany -  Life vests were snapped, before one group even left the shore. They say other boaters have been considerate this weekend, and Lake Chehaw hasn't been too crowded.

But you may want to watch out for the wildlife, it can get pretty scary. Lucretia Holland says,  "Be very careful and watch out for gators. They're are out. Really? Yes." Have you seen a lot of them already? "Three."

Tamara Blair says, "It's a gorgeous day. We just want to be out on the water with our friends and family."

To keep the waters family friendly and safe, remember boating under the influence is just as dangerous as driving under the influence, and DNR officers are out in full force patrolling.
