Dangers of Stationary Object Collisions
Boaters are often more readily aware of moving objects near them in the water, such as other boats and swimmers. Unfortunately, they may overlook the threat posed by stationary objects, which are often quite substantial. The sudden stop caused by a collision with a stationary object is likely to lead to a number of severe injuries. Stationary objects with which one might collide include:
- Anchored boats
- Piers or docks
- The shore
Injuries may require immediate medical attention, and in the case that an individual loses consciousness or is submerged, a tragic drowning may occur.
