Any idea what happened? My parents were there and said they were loaded up around 2 and didn't see anything. Wonder if they came in too fast on that slick mud at low tide?

Boat port side impacted concrete and wood pillar. Caved in hull and bottom split. Almost looks like the fellow was trying to steer for the slide when things went bad. Spoke with a guy who had helped victims and he mentioned stuck throttle.

Prayers
