Tragedy In Oyster Bay Long Island leaving 3 children dead

      A 34ft vessel holding 27 people (10 children and 17 adults) capsized  July 4th In Oyster Bay Long Island, taking the lives of three children (David Aureliano 12,Victoria Gaines 7, and  Harlie Treanor 11). According to National Weather Service winds never exceeded over 10-15mph yet a so called wave is what capsized the vessel? There is no doubt the boat was over loaded, other boating sites suggests the boat should only have held up to 15 passengers. All together it is a horrific tragedy... T o hear the families Attorney so worried and defending statements about life jackets, they forgot the key factor... The boat was over crowded. Whether wave or wake what do you think happens when you rock a boat? Logically being over its weight limit it would tip. I don't understand where these parents didn't think this was a safety issue. As sad as this sounds In my opinion they should be charged with reckless endangerment of minors. No one wants to loose a family member, or even put away another one for their carelessness but... what about the law? what about those children? I'm sure their parents are going through there own personal hell but these situations are how new laws are made. By people being made examples of tragedies like this can be avoided.
