He went to sit on the bow rail and misjudged the height and fell overboard. Right away everyone yelled "Man Overboard" and the driver put the engines in neutral. The props still got him. He was found about 10 minutes later badly dismembered and already dead. We were listening to the police channell on the VHF...it was not good.
wow, that is horrible sorry for your friends
