Warm weather, cold water can be dangerous to late season boaters

So far this fall, four people have died during the late boating season.
While air temperatures are mild, the cold water can prove dangerous, or even deadly, especially if people don't consider the consequences of cold water shock and hypothermia that can result from falling into water at this time of year.
