Coast Guard Responsible in Death

The National Transportation Safety Board blamed the U.S. Coast Guard for lax oversight leading up to the 2009 San Diego patrol boat crash that killed 8-year-old Anthony DeWeese. The Federal board concluded that the Coast Guard boat pilot was going too fast — as fast as 42 knots — for the crowded conditions on San Diego Bay at night The NTSB discussed its findings at a meeting Tuesday morning in Washington, D.C. A summary written report was released later in the day, and the full report will be published in coming weeks, officials said.
