The Waccanaw River in South Carolina has claimed the life of one, and has seriously disrupted the life of another.Apparently this last Saturday, there was an accident involving a boat, a tree, and a couple of college kids.
According to the Department of Natural Resources Investigators, the investigation is still underway and will take weeks to figure out what exactly happened. All that is being released thus far is that the boat the three college kids were on collided with some trees sometime shortly before 7:00 p.m. Thereafter, one of the students was pronounced dead on scene, and the other two were taken to the hospital.
One father’s daughter was on that boat, and was still in the Intensive Care Unit at Grand Strand Regional Medical Center as of Monday night, where she remained unconscious until 9:00 p.m., where she thereafter opened her eyes 6-7 times that night and into the next morning.
What is really the heart of the problem, as stated by the girl’s father is “with South Carolina’s boating laws, because it is not required to have insurance in order to own a boat. ” His daughter was transported to the hospital via helicopter, and now the weight of the bills have fallen onto the shoulders of the father, as though his punishment is not already grave enough.
