As a former resident of that neighborhood , I know anyone going in the or on the lake had to be intoxicated...it's not a recreational type of lake. The woman should be charged with child endangerment for taking a child on the lake. Also the lake is in Lilburn.

For a lake that is not "recreational" the people who live around it sure are territorial of it. God forbid someone else would stick their toe in it.

I have lived on lake lucerne road for years and up until the last few years people were aloud to fish in the lake now it takes an act of congress, I hate how the lake is treated now. But for this couple that don't live here I would like to know how they were on a boat on this lake in the first place, if some one let them in they should be held responsible for part of what happen since this couple was drinking. Also why is the mother not arrested for driving while drinking with her child in the car?

I live in this community and we pay dues to use the lake. It is unfortunate that others can't have access but people that live on the lake do not like having everyone having access to their back yards. When it wasn't so guarded we had a lot of thieft of boats so it was the surrounding people and their actions that led to the guarding of the property. From what I know this couple stole the pontoon boat found under Starbucks and NO ONE gave them permission. This boat is old and hasn't been running for a couple of years, they obviously had no brains when thinking this was a good idea. And to take her son out there was criminal and she doesn't deserve to be his mother.

The couple stole the boat from the Gwinnett School of Music's dock. I don't know more, like if the keys were in it or if they just untied it but do know the school was closed.I think they should get charges too.

Even if they "stole" the boat you people have no right to say these things! She lost a good friend and almost died herself! They made stupid decisions that she will have to live with forever! The poor child will be scarred for life. You people are jerks. Really.
