Water Safety

MSHP Warns Of Dangers Around Boat Docks........


Colonel Sandra Karsten superintendent of the Missouri State Highway Patrol is urging boat dock owners to take the necessary precautions to make their dock safe from stray electrical currents.


Numbness and tingling in the extremities while swimming has been a common statement made by the survivors of incidents involving electrical current in the water near docks.


The safest course of action is to swim away from any dock suspected to be charged with electricity.  Swimming to another nearby dock or exiting the water at the shore a safe distance from the electrically charged dock would be the alternative........
