Dangerous turbulence

Ohio River dams can be dangerous places for small boats. A man lost his life Monday when his boat got caught in currents coming from the Newburgh Locks and Dam.

I've seen fishermen take their small boats up close to the rollers at the Gallipolis Locks and Dam. At least once I saw a dam worker shoo them away because they were too close to the turbulent water.
