There are so many misfortunate accidents on the water way..There were some Prattville residents that died awhile back, when a drunk boat driver hit them. Then there was the drowning of that Assistant District Attorney a few years back, who was boating with 19th Judicial Circuit District Attorney Randall Houston, and former Assistant D.A. Sam Partridge.
The man who drowned in this case was fishing with his nephew. when his 12 foot boat tipped over when he was reaching down to pull up his fishing line. The uncle was not wearing a life jacket, and could not swim. ALWAYS HAVE LIFE JACKETS ON YOUR BOAT...Prayers go out to this family in their time of grief.
