A casual cruise on Bear Creek in Baltimore, Maryland wreaked havoc on the passengers of this electric paddle boat. Dawny Brotzman bought a brand new electric paddle boat as a source for exercise and decided to take her retired parents for a ride. After only being on the water for 20 minutes, the boat began to fill with water, ultimately leading to it capsizing.
Without an automatic shutoff for the motor, there is an additional danger to be aware of as Dawny, her parents and her dog scramble to hold on. Dawny relates this incident to product failure and dubs these boats unsafe. She wants to bring awareness to the risks involved when purchasing an electric paddle boat and well, what better way than this video.
