Here is one of the stories:
3 children electrocuted while swimming in lakes; 3 drown in river - U.S. News

And it seems the one was apparently the fault of faulty wiring at the marina. Hardly the kids fault.
Tennessee marina where electrocution occurred files corrective plan

But in general, lacking the shock hazzard, swimming at the marina is not the safest thing to be doing. Still, kids don't know that. Parents should. Boaters even more so.
