PWC Operator Charged in Boater's Death

This article speaks for itself.

Colorado man charged in boater's death in Nebraska

Updated 12:04 p.m., Tuesday, September 4, 2012

OGALLALA, Neb. (AP) Authorities have released more information on a deadly collision between a personal watercraft and a boat on Lake McConaughy (mah-CAHN'-eh-hay) in western Nebraska.
Keith County Attorney Randy Fair says 64-year-old Richard Caroselli, of Brighton, Colo., died on Sunday when the watercraft ended up the boat. Fair says four other family members were in the boat, and three of them were injured.
Fair says 36-year-old Andrew Schmidt, of Castle Rock, Colo., is charged with manslaughter and reckless/negligent operation of a personal watercraft. His case isn't on the online court system, and it's unclear if he has an attorney.
Fair says reports show the boat was coming into a dock when the watercraft slammed into the side of the boat and landed in the boat.

Re: PWC Operator Charged in Boater's Death

First time I ever stepped on board a boat was on Lake McConaughy--about 45 years ago. Learned to water ski there. Why is it that such a large percentage of PWC drivers seem to be so irresponsible and inconsiderate?
