And the moral of the story(reason behind the accident) trying to pee overboard when your Richard is too short. Learn to accept that fact and pee in a bucket(bailing can).

Good vibes on these guys for helping out!

I've heard word that many unfortunate accidents like this start with people trying to wiz off of the boat.

Thank God that everyone was saved. Also that the little girl was ok. Please everyone be safe and always respect mother nature. Also thank the two men who were there at the right time. Still many good people around.

Absolutely hero’s! Proof that life jackets do save lives. Now if only everyone would wear one so many tragedy’s could be prevented!

Hats off to those that help out, happy to hear everything turn out ok.. A few years back we help a guy who had falling out of the boat , still in gear doing circles with him hanging on. Just off beacon island

A number of years ago we pulled two guys in who sunk their bass boat just south of the mouth of the Lavase. We watched them go under and raced over in a deep 14 in two ft plus waves to rescue them and they were more concerned about losing their boat than their lives. They would not get in our boat but instead chose to cling to their boat and wanted us to tow the whole works in. I damned near cut them loose as they almost took us down with them! Never again! Next time something like that happens either they leave the boat behind and get in ours or stay and be found clinging to their boat by someone else. Glad to see the original story posted had a happy conclusion.
