Everyone's thoughts will be with boating tragedy family

Editor's Viewpoint

The death of a mother-of-two in a boating accident in Fermanagh was one of those random tragedies that strike at a time when people, including the victim, are at their happiest. The woman apparently fell into the water while checking the moorings on a holiday hire boat late at night.

Her two children were asleep on the vessel at the time, adding a further poignant twist to the tragedy. Her death demonstrates yet again the potential dangers of any waterway and the need to take every precaution when boating. Everyone's sympathy will go out to the bereaved husband who dived into the lake in an attempt to save his wife, and to their children.
