Ottawa Couple Drowns

Posted by wlpo on July 18, 2011

A husband and wife from Ottawa drowned in Lake Havasu in Arizona.

The bodies of 44-year old Mike and his 43-year old wife Brenda Bedecker were found Sunday morning after they were thrown from a boat Friday night in Lake Havasu.  A sheriff’s spokeswoman says the Bedeker’s boat made an abrupt turn going 70 to 80 miles per hour.  Witnesses saw the boat make an erratic turn just before it rolled four or five times.  Investigators say the speed and sudden turn could’ve been the result of a mechanical error on the boat.

Rob and Lisa Snook of Ottawa were on the boat with the Bedeker’s.  They were also thrown from the boat but sustained only minor injuries.
