There were a couple boating accidents but no deaths during the July 4th holiday, officials say.
On Lake Tobosofkee in Macon, a boat crossed the rope of a pontoon pulling three minors on a tube. The children hit the side of the boat.
"Thankfully the boats were going slow," says Doug Furney, the lake's director. "It happened because both operators were not paying attention."
The kids were transferred to the hospital to treat a couple of scrapes and cuts. They were expected to be released according to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources Wildlife Resources Division.
Three people were charged with a BUI, or boating under the influence.
Two of the BUI charges came against people at Lake Lanier and one from Lake Harding near Bartlett's Ferry, according to the DNR.
