Safety on Lake Travis

As the summer boating season begins we need to be reminded to always wear lifejackets and exercise caution when out on the lake.
A University of Texas senior nursing student, 21 year old Quynh Pham died while celebrating a family member’s birthday party Sunday on Lake Travis. When their rented pontoon boat hit a wave, Quynh, who had been leaning against a railing on the boat, fell overboard and the boat ran over her.
