what caused a deadly boating accident
on Smith Mountain Lake earlier this
month.

ENG#=1 VO-NAT
VO-NAT




*CG locator Smith Mt. Lake
This Month The Department of Game and Inland
Fisheries says it was a combination of
factors.

There was a mechanical defect in
the cooling system of the boat's engine
that allowed water to be pumped into
the boat, but not out.

That caused the 33-foot
Hacker-Craft to take on too much
weight and capsize in the high wind.

64-year-old Richard Smith
of Moneta was killed in the April
Fourth accident.

44-year-old David Reynolds

of Grottoes is presumed dead. His body
has not been found.

Two other men survived,
though none of the four was wearing a
life jacket

Game wardens say that
could have made a difference in this
case and they encourage every boater to
wear one.

*CG locator Cape Canaveral, FL

Hawking took off on a flight to
simulate zero gravity today from the
Kennedy Space Center in Florida.


The jet is outfitted with special
padding, and makes a series of plunges
so passengers can experience zero
gravity.

Hawking has been in a wheel chair
due to Lou Gehrig's disease.

He is the first disabled person
to take this weightless flight.
