“Practice your boater safety. Do as you can to be as safe as you can. Always, we want everybody to have a good time. If that would include the alcohol please stay on land on your feet, not in a vehicle or boat,” said Lieutenant Greg Venable, with the Winfield Police Department.
The investigation of the boat crash is now in the hands of the Kansas Wildlife and Parks.
