    This is the boat that was in the accident. Taken when they were launching it. Nice boat! I dont know the details of the event as it occurred about 1 or 2 minutes before we got there, but I cannot believe that anyone in our group would have been doing 70+mph through that area by Miller Park with the water as rough as it was. I think the speeds were more in the neighborhood of possibly 50. There was also some mention of a possible mechanical failure of the steering system? Hasnt been confirmed by anyone yet. As with the others my prayers go out to everyone on the boat and hope they recover 100%

    This is true. We were right behind them and we were doing about 50-55 m.p.h.

    Default To all concerned.

    My daughters and I were off their starboard stern by a few hundred yards or so. We did have video rolling but after reviewing its pretty rough. My daughter was not very steady as the water was a bit sloppy at the point we cleared the the down river side of the I-80 bridge.
    The cabin boat in question was no more than a 25' Owens or something of that nature slow but plowing and I saw no negligence on his part.
    I saw the boat go vertical and after touching back down she made a hard turn to port the sight of the four being ejected is still fresh. Biggest concern was getting everybody up river aware of people in the water as they were all charging for the meet up at Scott's.
    Throwing Crystal a life jacket while blocking with my boat was the only safe thing to do at the time. Thanks for the assistance to those who pulled her from the water along with one of the male victims.
    All I can say is that my families hearts go out to those involved and we too wish them complete and swift recoveries.
    If my memory and video of the incident can be of any help please feel free to contact me. @916 348-7046

    On a lighter note thanks to Buzz for the invitation to attend the event. The remainder of the day went smooth and without further incident and I was happy that my big old pig of a Pachanga held her own and the only drifting was done on purpose.

    This is Brian's wife, I know many of you have been concerned over the victims of the boating accident that occurred over the Labor Day weekend. I have been in contact with Larry and he is doing well (he suffered the least amount of injuries). As of last Thursday the driver of the boat (Dean) and his daughter were transferred to Kaiser, which is good because it means they were medically stable. Rachel however had surgery last Wednesday and had a piece of her skull removed because of brain swelling. The good news is she sat up with nursing yesterday and is answering questions with 2-3 word responses. They all need your continued prayers and thoughts, especially Rachel as she will be facing a long rehab and recovery process.

    Thank you for the update,
    Myself, Sheri and her Daughter Ashley were so upset yesterday when we learned from our group at Folsom Lake yesterday the extent of the injuries suffered by Dean, Crystal, Rachel and Larry.
    We did not know them personally but we were about the sixth or 7th boat on our way to Scott's when we came around the corner and I saw 4 heads in the water and boats slowing down, we came to idle and heard screams for help, we were close to Dean and Rachel, I backed in and jumped in the water and got them both to the low platform on my boat. Ashley was calling 911 and Sheri was helping support Rachel while I was holding Dean.
    Visibly Dean was the worst, complaining of right side pain and he had a broken nose, what got us most was Rachel's injuries, she was coherent and able to somewhat function helping Sheri get her on the boat, on a lighter note which we all need, is that when ejected from the boat, Rachel's bottoms came off and she was very concerned about getting on board, I found them close by and Sheri got her set and on board.
    I remained in the water with Dean holding on the platform until Greg who is also a EMT jumped in to help support Dean, I seemed we were in the water for at least 15-20 minutes. The Sheriff's boat arrived and we transferred Dean to a board in the water and then they put him on board.
    Rachel put on a life jacket, hugged and thanked Sheri for picking them up and was helped on to the Sheriff's boat, I guess it was the Miller Park ramp they took them to. Myself and another gave statements to the Sheriff at Scott's.

    It is good to hear Larry is doing better. Please keep posting updates on Dean, Crystal and Rachel's recovery. They are in our hearts, Jeff Willson

    This is brian's wife again, just to let everyone know Rachel is now out of ICU after 12 days. This is awesome news! Just want to tell everyone what a great group of people you are. It is nice to know what you all will do for your fellow boater whether you know them or not. Thanks for all the prayers and support. I can't tell you how much that means to everyone.

    Hello Brian's wife, your name?
    Do you know how the others are? If they are still in the Hospital, do you know where they all are?
    Thanks for the good news about Rachel.
