Boating Accidents Up In Washington

The number of boating accidents in Washington last month was dramatically higher than in May 1994, the Coast Guard.

Seven people lost their lives as a result of capsizings or falls overboard last month, bringing the total for 1995 to 12.

None of those who died last month were wearing a life jacket, a Coast Guard news release said.

In 1994, one person died in a boating accident in May and the total number of deaths over the first five months of the year was 10.
