Lake of the Ozarks Speedboat Accident Video

Recommended Posts

Sorry if I've posted this in the wrong area. Anyway, I'm sure many have seen this video. My question is, what is the driver doing with his left hand before the wipeout?

going on/off the throttle?

At anyrate, this is the best vid I've seen in a while: http://www.g4tv.com/...-dubstep-remix/

Oh, too funny. Could the driver have any slower reflexes or intuition? Guy just went down without any hint of resistance...

I read the driver had some sort of spinal compression from a jarring wave that essentially knocked him out cold while still seated. I am amzed that no one died in the accident. The boat was traveling at 60+mph.

Well that would make sense, did it comment about any other injuries? Looks like he pretty much rag-dolled into the port side hard.

I've been 120 in a Skater before. It's a very scary speed on the water, but fun for me because I love speed and the driver was an experienced and sane person. Especially at that time when I was in my early 20's - 20 years later when you get some experience, you start to understand that things like this can happen in all aspects of life. I'd still totally love riding with that guy again, though.

There's was another thread about this video. At first I was laughing with everyone else, but then someone pointed out they were first responder at a similar accident and a small boy died, which sobered me right up. It's funny to see these darwinian type gaffs, but I think about the real effects someone's stupidity can have and I think about myself and what I should be doing to keep people safe.

I am sure the gal in the green bikini may need some dental work when her face mooshed up against the side window and knocked her sunglasses off.

Stuff happens quickly out on the water....gotta stay alert all the time.

When you mix stupidity and motors bad things happen quickly. It's just that in boats the people are usually only in bathing suits...
