2 Men Past Their 70s Drown after Airboat Accident in Gator-infested Waters

The Story:

On Sunday night two airboat riders were found dead after an accident just West of Cocoa in alligator-infested waters.

Important Because:

Airboating can be a dangerous sport, and accidents often prove fatal.

Wearing a life jacket, for example, can save your life.

It was not confirmed whether the two men were, in fact, wearing life jackets.

This Happened:

Witnesses say the airboat was traveling a high rate of speed when it flipped over on a turn.

Four people were on board the vessel, two of whom made it to shore and survived, two others drowned.

Officials say that the drowned men were in their 70s and 80s.

The airboat sank after the accident.
