A promising college student accompanied his girlfriend to Lake Hartwell for a Memorial Day camping trip her extended family.  On Friday night they announced plans to marry.  On Saturday morning they were floating on a raft when her 14 year old cousin steered a borrowed Kawasaki 900 STX Jetski  into the cove where the young lovers were floating.   As the  young cousin entered the cove, he released the throttle and began to coast.  To his surprise, he had no way to steer.  What he did not know was that once he released the throttle, the ski could not be steered.  By contrast, Kawasaki and every other personal water craft manufacturer knew that their ski's suffer from a defect known as Off-Throttle-Steering, "OTS", and they've known that fact since 1973 when they first introduced their product in the United States. The young cousin could not change his course and crashed into  the young couple.  Unconscious, client slipped into 20 feet deep water undetected.  He was recovered 25 minutes later, revived, only to die the next night from the cruel effects of drowning. Litigation is on-going in Federal Court.
