Boat flies out of Maine pond, lands in trees
May 24, 2009
SHAPLEIGH, Maine—Authorities say someone from Massachusetts suffered life-threatening injuries when a boat flew out of a Maine pond and landed eight feet off the ground in some trees.
The Maine Warden Service says four people, all from Massachusetts, were aboard the boat in Square Pond in Shapleigh when it crashed around 1:30 a.m. Sunday. Two of them were injured.
Sgt. Tim Place says alcohol was probably involved.
I am no physicist but I would guess that something more considerable than just alcohol was definitely involved.
And in other, sicker, news I am secretly impressed that a fellow Masshole managed to wing a boat out of a lake and into a tree.
