I know these kids & they're all a bunch of spoiled indulgent drunks & to call them heroes is a gross misrepresentation of who they & their parents are. The parents of these kids that allow such behavior are to be held accountable also. There are no heroes here & only 1 victim. Rethink what you give your kids & their character & actions! Pathetic that money will buy these kids out of criminal charges but money can't buy back this kid's body.

You obviously don't know these kids or what happen. That kid would not be alive if it weren't for those kids you moron. It sounds like your a miserable, jealous person that has no life and if you weren't such a coward and you know these people and think that, then you would state your name!]

Yea I'm sure you never drank underage before! These are not high school kids! They are all going into their 3rd and 4th year of college. They all work very hard and are in no way spoiled. If they really were intoxicated they would not have reacted so quickly and everything could have ended up worse than it already is. It is a terrible tragedy what happened, but it was an accident. I'm sure you've never done anything wrong in your life Justice 0911. And just so you know, the boat operater blew under .08% BAC... You are very ignorant to think the parents are giving their children alcohol. By the way how are things up there all the way on top of your high horse! Get a Life!

people who automatically assume that anyone with money is spoiled. you obviously dont the other peoples personal problems so you should keep you mouth shut. and bringing the parents into it is low. they werent kids, their parents dont watch their every move. get a life and stop annalizing everyone elses.

I have read all the blogs on LoHud this justice 0911 is abusive and should be stopped from posting. The young man that was interviewed on news 12 who helped save john's life said there was beer out there he did not say he was or who was drinking he also was 50 ft away from that accident. 0911 is abusive and has no knowledge what so ever what happened . The young men that rescued john were interviewed by the police
and they new those young men were not drinking as did the adults that were on the dock where they brought john they also stated they reacted quickly and did everything to help instead of panicking ..0911 terrorist

Please you're the terrorist. Maybe if you weren't a drunk a were a better parent your kid wouldn't wind up in all the wrong places at the wrong time. Coincidence? I don't think so. Stop being so self righteous & take ownership of your poor parenting skills & hysterical nature that blows things out of proportion, especially the innocence of your little druggie punk - the fruit doesn't fall far does it. You & your husband spawned some excellent offspring you should be proud instead you post like some prima donna - yeah ok trailer park

I am not afraid to leave my name. too bad none of you have any idea of what your talking about except for justice0911. I was there that day along with 2 of my friends. the only reason that kid is still alive is because of us. Those kids are spoiled and were as drunk as you can get. They did nothing to help and the driver even tried driving away once we got him off their boat and had to be chased down by the police boat. When those kids flagged us over they didn't even have the common sense to get the kid out of the water all though he had pretty much bled out already. They couldn't even tell the 911 operator where on lake Mahopac that they were. My friend rob and I jumped in the water from our boat and lifted the kid on the swim platform. I Tied off what was left of his leg while my other friend took control of the boat and told 911 where to meet us. My third friend was in shock from the sights we had to see that die. These kids are far from a hero and were so drunk that they didn't know what to do. They were funneling vodka for crying out loud. When we watched that boat launch at the marina that morning with all those kids we knew something was gonna happen. Thas the real story , those kids don't deserve any credit
