Videos by OutKick

The local news stations were busy over the holiday reminding people of boating safety like when they remind people how to drive in the winter and how to #staysafe in a tornado, earthquake, hurricane, etc.

Hey TV stations, when are you going to remind people how to #staysafe while boating across Lake Powell when A MASSIVE BOULDER RIPS OFF AND FALLS INTO THE LAKE?

“To see one of these giant walls fall was once in a lifetime. We can’t forget that nature and the Lord are in charge!” boater Steve Carter wrote on Facebook after his too-close-for-comfort meeting with the splashdown that happened Monday while he was out just living life.

Steve described the sound of the rock rolling into the water as a “thunderstorm.

Let’s all promise to not get too close to the Lake Powell — which has already hit a historic low water level year — cliffs that are jonesing to go for a swim.
