Colorado Woman Crushed to Death Between Two Boats in West Palm

WEST PALM BEACH -- A Colorado woman was crushed to death between her new million-dollar yacht and a nearby sailboat, officials said.
Lillian Montague, 54, of Arvada, Colo., and her husband, Ronald, were raising their anchor Sunday when their boat became tangled in an unoccupied sailboat's mooring line, according to Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
Montague was apparently attempting to prevent the two vessels from crashing, said Jorge Pino, spokesman for the wildlife commission.
"The front part of the bow of the sailboat pinned her up against her boat,'' Pino said.
She was pronounced dead at St. Mary's Medical Center.
The couple had just bought Boundless Grace, a 47-foot yacht, and planned to take a group voyage from Fort Lauderdale to the Mediterranean to kick off their retirement.
Montague was an office manager for a school district in Colorado for about 30 years.
