RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA, USA, January 14, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — America’s Boating Channel, the U.S. Coast Guard funded boating safety and boater education video service produced by United States Power Squadrons® – America’s Boating Club® (USPS-ABC), now features ALEX OTTE from NASBLA, the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators, and Operation Dry Water on America’s Boating Channel’s smart TV and online services.
Alex Otte was 13-years old when a drunk boater ran her over as she sat on her jet ski. Her injuries were so severe she was not expected to survive. In ALEX OTTE, NASBLA and Operation Dry Water present Alex’s story of how one person’s choice to drink alcohol while boating led to her almost losing her life and having to adapt to a new way of life with the injuries she sustained. Alex’s story is a firsthand account of why it is never worth it to consume alcohol or to be otherwise impaired while boating and how the choice you make can change someone else’s life forever.
The video is Featured Now on America’s Boating Channel’s free smart TV app on Apple TV, Roku, and Fire TV, on AmericasBoatingChannel.com, and on its YouTube channel, as well as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and other social networks from January 14 through 20.
