A case in Lake Simcoe

This CTV news I just read happened last week:

A father and son ended up in hospital after a spectacular wipeout with their speedboat Sunday on Lake Simcoe.

York Regional Police said the 32-year-old son was discharged from hospital Sunday night while the 64-year-old father was kept overnight for observation.

They had been out on the popular recreational lake in a 14-metre-long Nortec speedboat, which is capable of reaching speeds of up to 160 kilometres per hour.

Witnesses said the boat hit a rogue wave in Killarney Bay around 4:30 p.m., causing the boat to roll.

"The boat is like, cut in half," said Denise Carl as she videotaped the aftermath of the crash.

The good news is that after hospital stay, everyone is o.k. Too bad that there were videos showing the aftermath, but none was able to capture the freaque wave in action. Well, that's life!
