Just read in the paper about an accident in Anchor Bay last night. Some guy drunk hit the wake from another boat and the five passangers in his boat were thrown in the water one is missing.
What a dumb a$$!!!
sorry I do not have any info. Where in Anchor bay may have been in Macomb county? I do know that a man drown up by the blue water bridge thurday or Friday. Jumped in for a swim but couldn't get back to the ladder.
I also saw the boat at Michigan Marine Salvage on South River Rd. the boat had a huge hole in the side of it and the seat post had broken right off on both driver and passenger seats the posts were just ripped out of the floor it was very eerie to even look at what a bummer!!
How horrible.....I feel so said for the family. I had afriend who went down on his snowmobile up on Drummund Island. His accident was due to not using his head as well but that doesn't help the people left behind

Driver Faces Charges

A missing boater's body was discovered Saturday and the driver may now face charges.
John Anthony Karl, 33, of Macomb Township, was reported missing after a boating accident on Lake St. Clair Friday afternoon. The Macomb County Sheriff Marine Division responded to a report of a capsized boat around 6:30 p.m. about 2 miles out from Mac and Ray Marina, according to the Sheriff's Department.
The department's initial investigation was that the boat was traveling at a high rate of speed and turned over in the water. All six occupants of the boat were ejected. Five were rescued by the Marine Division, U.S. Coast Guard and another boater in the area, according to the Sheriff's Department.
Members of the Sheriff's Department dive team searched the area for Karl. His body was located Saturday.
Alcohol appears to be a factor in the accident and charges will be sought against the 49-year-old Chesterfield Township man who was operating the boat, the Sheriff's Department said.
Karl's family has been notified and is reportedly making funeral arrangements.
