“The incident in the purported boat mishap video was actually a routine safety simulation exercise being carried out by the LASWA Emergency Rescue Team as part of their Training Exercise .

“The  training demonstration is part of LASWA safety preparedness against any possible incident on the State Inland Waterways,” she added.
