Recent Tragic Accidents In Austin 

 

There have been a number of reports of unusual deaths in the Austin area over the last several days. In one case a young lady went out on a boating excursion with friends. Apparently, they were using a pontoon boat, which is one of the safest types there is. Unfortunately, the boat hit a wake and the young woman was thrown from the boat after which she was run over. She tragically died at the scene.

 

A second unusual accidental death occurred as a result of a skydiving accident. The accident was the result of the failure of a parachute to fully open after an elderly gentleman jumped from a plane. He plummeted to a nearby field and died on the scene from his injuries.

 

And in a third incident a woman appeared to slip over a bridge in East Austin – and a friend who went in search of her has disappeared as well – apparently into the creek below. A search that was initially undertaken has since been called off for the time being.

 

All three of the previous accidents are examples of mishaps that are part of summer activities in the Austin area – and serve as a reminder of how quickly an afternoon of fun can turn to tragedy.

 

My heart goes out to the families of these accident victims.

 

Please make sure you always approach leisure time activities with due caution.
