York County Fishermen Killed in Maryland Boating Accident

By Alpert Schreyer on May 2, 2011

Two brothers from York County lost their lives in a Maryland boating accident on the Chesapeake Bay recently, according the York Daily Record. The two brothers went out fishing with their third brother and a son-in-law, however, they decided to turn back because the water was rougher than they expected. As the fishermen turned the 23-foot boat toward shore, its motor died, and the boat began taking on water. The brothers were only able to grab three life preservers as the boat sank.

The son-in-law, the youngest of the fishermen, swam a mile and a half back to shore to seek help for the other three. By the time rescue workers arrived, however, two of the men had drowned and the third was nearing death. He remains in the hospital.

Investigators have not yet determined what caused the boat sink, and they have yet to locate the vessel, which sank before rescue workers had arrived.

Losing a family member is difficult, especially when it appears that someone else’s negligence was the cause. In a boating accident, underwater debris or a defectively manufactured boat, motor, or floatation device can quickly turn an enjoyable trip into a tragedy.
