Beautiful But Gone: Parents Share Stories of Teen Water Accidents -Texas Parks & Wildlife [Official]

As one of the busiest boating weekends approaches, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department is sending out a reminder to be safe on the water. On the heels of a recently released you-tube video called “Never Happens” featuring teenagers involved in a boating or swimming accident, a new video called “Beautiful But Gone” hears from the parents of those same teenagers. The video is a compelling reminder to be safe on the water by wearing a life jacket, learning to swim and closely supervising children around water. The Texas legislature mandated the new video and directed it to be shown in Driver’s Education classes where it could reach 225,000 teens annually. The 10-minute version, “Beautiful But Gone” can be seen on you-tube at http://youtu.be/RsAKt5jcDKI Or go to the Texas Parks and Wildlife webpage at http://www.tpwd.texas.gov and click on Boating and Safety.
