Boaters Urged To Wear Life Jackets

(Nashville, TN)  --  Boaters enjoying the holiday weekend up and down the Cumberland River are being asked to wear life jackets. 

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says kids 12 and under are required to have one on.  Adults aren't, but a spokesman says a life jacket can't work if you aren't wearing it.  Eleven people have drowned on a Corps lake so far this season.
