DNR: Don’t drink and boat

Posted on June 25, 2015 7:07 pm by Robert Joseph Baker

State Department of Natural Resources Capt. Robert McCullough says Lake Marion had three boating deaths in 2014 caused by alcohol.
“That’s three too many,” he said. “I don’t think people realize how dangerous boating while drinking alcohol can be, especially if you don’t have a designated driver. “

Boyce was killed in mid-June 2014 in the Orangeburg County side of Lake Marion, and Robert Davis was charged with felony boating under the influence. Their … Read the rest
