Tragic Accidents Preceed Safe Boating Week

On Saturday, the U.S. Coast Guard begins Boating Safety Week. Earlier this month, three high-profile boating accidents were in the headlines for the number of people involved and their tragic circumstances. Virginia law enforcement officials will be out in full force this week to educate the public.
