Hair-raising photos show a boat perilously close to plunging over the edge of a Texas dam — because the passengers were too busy gossiping, police and rescue officials said.
The electric boat, which was carrying four women, was saved from the edge of Longhorn Dam in east Austin on Thursday after it got swept up in a strong current at Lady Bird Lake, a reservoir along the Colorado River, KTBC reported.
“They approached the dam, weren’t paying attention, they were talking to each other,” Austin Police Officer Brad Smith told the station.Defund the police! 😉
