Two 9 year old's and a 5 year old and according to the story, they "put on life jackets when the boat began sinking." IOW, they weren't wearing life jackets and only put them on when the boat started to sink? Unbelievable!

A happy ending is right.

Now investigator's should start asking why these kids weren't wearing life jackets from the time they left port. Isn't there a law requiring it?

The guy should have purchased himself a brain before he went out that day. I'm sure his kids would have appreciated that purchase too.
