ANOTHER EXHAUSTING DAY ON THE WATER FOR FIRST RESPONDERS IN NEW ROADS.
THEY WERE LOOKING FOR THREE MISSING BOATERS IN THE FALSE RIVER. THIS AFTER TWO BOATS COLLIDED AROUND 9 SATURDAY NIGHT. THREE OTHER BOATERS ESCAPED WITH MINOR INJURIES, ONE IS STILL IN THE HOSPITAL AND ANOTHER IS IN CRITICAL CONDITION. AUTHORITIES STILL DON'T KNOW WHAT CAUSED THE CRASH. THEY'RE USING SONAR EQUIPMENT AND DIVERS TO SWEEP THE AREA, AFTER TALKING TO WITNESSES WHO SAW THE ACCIDENT. ONE OF THOSE WITNESSES, LEO STOOT, SAYS HE COULD TELL RIGHT AWAY THAT THE CRASH WAS SERIOUS.
