Default Dyno-Might, and you though fishing was safe

(16 June 1998, Illinois) A man drowned in Fox Lake after he and a friend inadvertently blasted a hole in the bottom of their rowboat with a quarter stick of dynamite. Daniel, twenty-nine, and his unidentified friend were relaxing on the lake on Sunday in a fourteen-foot aluminum boat, when they decided to toss the M-250 explosive into the water. They intended to kill fish with the blast, not themselves, said chief deputy coroner Jim Wipper. A sudden gust of wind pushed their boat over the firecracker, and the boat sank about a hundred yards from shore. Daniel drowned; the friend swam safely

Sounds like this escapade should have been part of the "Darwin Awards" for stupid people.

Probably the first boat to be sunk by a depth charge in over 60 years..........
