Lake Travis Trump Boat Parade mishaps

It was a Facebook event.Central Texas boaters who support the re-election of President Donald Trump were encouraged to ride their boats-- no matter what shape or size -- to Lake Travis and be a part of the Lake Travis Trump Boat Parade.Some of the boats were fast, others were leisurely, and they all wanted to parade! According to the sheriff's department, the wake in the water was caused by so many boats on the water in close proximity..

Some actually sank into Lake Travis.The Travis County Sheriff's Office responded to many of the boats in distress.The Sheriff's Office said it is difficult to count the boats involved or the people who needed rescue because many other boaters helped them before the First Responders arrived on the scene.

The Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Services says there were no personal injuries.The boat parade route included Paradise Cove, West Beach, and Point Venture.
