Low head dam fatality
« on: September 14, 2017, 05:55:41 PM »
Tuesday morning when I left the river there was one car in the parking area...from Delaware.

A man 60 y.o. and another 71 y.o. from Delaware were fishing near the low head dam at the Hummels Wharf Power station Tuesday when they got too close and their boat capsized. Another news article said they had life jackets on. The younger man got to shore but the 71 y.o. got caught in the backwash and drowned.

Be careful near these dams.

The hours spent fishing are not subtracted from the lives of men!!
