This kind of accident simply shouldnt happen. Someone wasnt watching what was going on in the immediate vacinity of their boat. - Anyone know what kind of boat it was ?

Tragic - nasty things props - maybe the jetskis aren't so dangerous after all???

Maybe the person driving the boat didn't realise it was still in gear??? Who knows - more lives ruined though!!!

The person was climbing into the boat at the stern, in gear trousers got caught in prop. They lifted the boat today with his trousers still wrapped round the prop.

Very sad, these types of accidents do not need to happen.

Did any of these guys have any powerboat training?
Engine always in neutral, if not even switched off when recovering a MOB.

Nick.
Do you REALLY need training to know how dangerous a spinning prop is??? And it is NOT only the bloke in the boat - I don't think I would approach the back of a boat with the engine running!!!
