Fifteen-year-old boy killed in boating accident

Jul 20, 2008 Full story: www.pressrepublican.com 74

A 15-year-old boy from Connecticut died after he fell from a boat Saturday evening.

Town of Ticonderoga Police reported Daniel K. Nadeau of Mansfield, Conn. was riding in the bow of a 20-foot fishing boat driven by Christopher A. Novack, 45, also of Mansfield, offshore a rural part of the Town of Crown Point at about 6 p.m. The boat encountered choppy water, which caused Nadeau to fall overboard and subsequently be hit on the head by the propeller.

Nadeau was pulled back aboard and the boat returned to the New York State Boat Launch next to the Fort Ticonderoga ferry dock. He was pronounced dead by Essex County Coroner Paul Connery.

Novack and Nadeau were participants in the Connecticut Outdoors fishing tournament. Town of Ticonderoga Supervisor Robert Dedrick said the tournament has been an annual event for the last 5 to 6 years.

Nadeauís mother and 16-year-old brother were passengers in the boat. Their names were not immediately available from police.

To both families: I am so sorry for your loss.
Allow yourselves to grieve, but support one another, especially Nate, Tom and Lisa. Find peace and understanding through the words of God.

The victim is still young and green. He can't swim in the least. I think it 's a pure accident. The Police has to investigate the case scrupulously. We can't merely take care of it. We indeed have to react to the case closely and scientifically.
Does Indonesia even have water? Find something better to do!!! Although, you probably can't drown in sand.

Dan was my little cousin. Even though he was actually alot bigger than me. lol. I miss him so much and think about him everyday, after all, he is tattooed on me. Everytime i go back and think about the times we didnt get to see each other because Either Nate or Dan had some sports thing going on, it pisses me off so much. Because that time is now gone. I never got to see him as much as i wanted to and now there is nothing i can do about it. Daniel, i just really miss you and everyday i wonder what you would look like now and how you would act. What stupid thing would you do to make me laugh? call my ex an oompa loompa like you did? haha. i miss you baby. i hope your there with me when i give birth August 25th 2010. I LOVE YOU.
