Young Boy Killed in Boating Accident Due to Coast Guard's Negligence

A new article has been uploaded into our law library.

The U.S. Coast Guard is responsible for the death of an 8-year-old that took place in 2009 during a holiday boat parade.

The Coast Guard crew’s excessive speed was to blame for the boat crash, said the National Transportation Safety Board. They were abroad a 33-foot patrol boat and a 24-foot Sea Ray. Anthony Deweese was the only child that died, but four of the twelve other children on the boat were seriously injured.

After reviewing the boat accidents, there have been changes to improve its operations, including increased navigation training requirements for boat crews.

Do you think there should be more safety requirements regarding speed for U.S Coast Guard?
