Authorities said no arrests have been made yet and no descriptions of the alleged attackers have been released.

Montgomery County District Attorney Brett Ligon told The Chronicle, “It appears what we have are two drivers charged with boating while intoxicated and a lady who lost her life in a mishap on the lake. This is the perils of being on a boat drinking all day, the perils of being on a crowded lake. These are the things we hope to avoid every summer when we are trying to let people know how deadly the roads and lakes are.”
