It was a sad way to end the day. I was too far away to see what happend, we could only hear a "pop" and saw a splash way off in the distance. We could see the boat was upside down on the telephoto lense but that was about it. I saw the medic boat coming to shore and they were doing CPR and knew it wasn't good. The STARS rescue team was on the scene immediately and everyone got to the boat within seconds.

To all the racers out there and the families involved, I send my deepest condolences.

RIP.....

Yeah I seen that video earlier today I was looking for more but couldnt find any.. All I know is what happened to these guys shouldnt have happened. There are plenty of other people like criminals that should be dead.

Rest in peace
