Two boys scouts electrocuted and killed while sailing – KRIS Corpus Christi News
Marion County, TX (CNN) – Two boy scouts were electrocuted and killed while sailing in Texas.
Investigators say the boys’ sail boat that hit a power line on Lake o’ the Pines Saturday afternoon.
Another boy was injured, and he was airlifted to the hospital.
The vessel was in a lake marina when the accident happened.
One boater says he is still puzzled by the incident. Logan Green says, “There are always sail boats on this lake but I’ve never heard anything about a sail boat being struck by a power line, so that’s kind of…my first reaction was ‘how did that even happen’ because I don’t really understand.”
An investigation into the incident is still underway.
