These young men almost got away from having a trial. The family of the victim has been grieving a long time waiting for justice to be brought to an end in this case.

What a sad thing to leave the scene of this serious injury when the victim was in the water and helpless. These young men could have done the right thing and pulled her out of the water and given aid.

Water safety is an obligation when piloting a motor craft. A person in the water is helpless when a motor craft runs over them with a propeller driven boat.

Accidents happen but a hit and run in the water like this is imminent danger and death when no one comes to the rescue.

If these men do not face the full extent of the law, we have failed the victim and society. Reckless endangerment and impaired boating are not accidents, they are choices that adults make. Swimming in open water is not a crime that deserves the death penalty.
