Wow. That's sad. Condolences to all the friends and family of the 2 who died.

It really sounds like that boat model \ nurse stepped up to the plate on this one. Just read that she jumped into the water and tried to keep the heads above water. Hazmat guys had to hose the diesel off her.

Horrible tragedy for sure.

This seems to be a terrible year for boating. I did not post this when it occurred but I lost a friend on Lake Murray a week ago. He was just giving a ride to a young lady when the accident happen. Now both are gone. Sunday was visitation because it was a week before they were found. My thoughts and prayers go out to all the loved ones who were lost this year just doing what they loved.

I am stunned to come home and log on and read what has happened. I feel very sad and heartbroken for all those friends and family involved. I have spoke to the photographer involved in this incident a few times at races in the past, picking up techniques of his because he is the best bar none. Prayers to all this has effected.
